The year 2023 marked a significant turning point for Advance Capital, a French company specialized in assisting managers and shareholders with their financial transactions in France and abroad. Founded in 2007 and with a staff of 100 and sales reaching EUR 18 million in 2023, the company has distinguished itself through its expertise in financial due diligence, transformation, valuation and restructuring. The company’s scope of action extends to acquisitions and disposals (in bonis or underperforming), debt restructuring, financial reporting, performance improvement and the valuation of equity and intangible assets.

With offices in Lyon, Paris, Aix-Marseille and Bordeaux, the company has firmly established its reputation and presence on the French market. Aware of the importance of being closer to its clients, Advance Capital recently took the strategic decision to expand its activities in Switzerland with the establishment of a subsidiary in Geneva. This move is designed to strengthen ties with existing customers while expanding business opportunities on the Swiss market.

This new subsidiary, which was officially registered at the beginning of the year, is staffed by three experienced financial professionals. Among them, Mathieu Gravier, with 17 years’ experience at PwC, including the last 7 years in Geneva, brings his expertise in sectors as varied as industry, healthcare, watchmaking, raw materials and technology.

Christophe Lapaque, also head of an investment bank in Switzerland, joins the team with a solid background in advising family businesses and private equity firms.

This expansion into Switzerland represents a crucial step in Advance Capital’s international growth and development. The geographical proximity of Geneva to other European financial centers and its role as a hub for cross-border business make it a strategic choice for companies seeking to benefit from a central location and easy access to an international network of companies and investors.GGBa and the economic development agency of the canton of Geneva (DG DERI) supported the process of setting up the new entity, enabling the new branch to get up and running in Switzerland as quickly as possible.
