Valeur Group acquires LinkedTrade platform
Valeur Group, an independent business specialised in asset management and trading services, has acquired LinkedTrade, a SaaS multi-dealer platform.
Using the most advanced technologies, LinkedTrade, a London-based FinTech company, digitally connects the Buy-side to the Sell-side and offers end-to-end automation for the conception, pricing, trading and risk monitoring of bespoke structured products. Since its creation, the purpose of LinkedTrade has been to make structured products available to all investors with a high level of transparency and to provide immediate responses to clients’ investment needs.
The acquisition will enable Valeur Group to strengthen its offering by leveraging the platform’s high degree of innovation and technological expertise, resulting in greater efficiency, reduced operational risks and up-scaled distribution channels.
The transaction falls within the Group’s well-defined investment thesis, which aims to invest in innovation and technology in investment solutions and to widen its geographical footprint through a global platform. The agreement will allow LinkedTrade to remain independent while Valeur Group will further invest in its development.
Lorenzo Vangelisti, Founder and CEO of Valeur Group, says: “The acquisition of LinkedTrade, a leading digital platform in the industry, is a milestone in expanding our investment solutions offering as well as our technology edge. We are very proud of this agreement, which enables us to provide our clients with an increasingly comprehensive service and is the starting point to develop LinkedTrade’s technology further.”
Nicolas Gaumont-Prat, CEO of LinkedTrade Technologies, says: “We are very pleased to join Valeur Group that has strong expertise in trading services and is continuously growing and developing their clients’ offerings. We share their strategic view and founding values of professionalism, accuracy, and a result-oriented approach. It is the beginning of a successful partnership that will allow us to accelerate our developments in LinkedTrade and broaden our digital services.”
During the transaction, Valeur Group was assisted by the international law firm DLA Piper in all legal aspects for the various involved jurisdictions.
