Founded as an intercompany consortium (GIE) by a group of insurers, ACS was taken over in 2011 by Anne-Marie Ponthier and 12 managers with the support of strategic shareholders (Groupe Monceau, SwissLife, MMA and Saretec Developpement), the company ACS Solutions became in France a well-established B2B provider of outsourcing services (Third Party Administrator-TPA) focusing on the management of construction damage claim proceeding.

Since its creation, the company doubled its turnover, with regular organic growth.

Following a meeting between Anne-Marie Ponthier and Pierre Bustamante, the two managers decided to launch a new phase of ACS's growth with a long-term transition period. Pierre has more than 25 years of experience in insurance; he has worked both in insurance companies and as a service provider for insurers, mutual societies, and major brokers. Pierre co-founded and developed the international consultancy CH&Co (€30M turnover, 150 employees) for over 10 years.

Following a competitive process led by Cambon Partners based on demanding specifications, Indigo Capital was able to offer the best financing solution, enabling the two managers and more than 40 team members to hold a large majority of the capital. Saretec Developpement and Groupe Monceau are selling their respective stakes. The insurer SwissLife remains a shareholder.
