The leading independent online platform for the distribution of savings products welcomes IK Partners to its capital

Linxea Finance Group, and Irbis solutions —supported by NextStage AM and M3I since 2015, are welcoming new investment from IK Partners to launch a new phase of accelerated development. The transaction is subject to the approval of the AMF, the French financial markets regulator.

Over the past 20 years, Linxea has established itself as the leading independent online platform for the distribution of savings products in France. Since 2015, under the leadership of Antoine Delon and Yves Conan, Linxea has seen very strong growth with the support of NextStage AM and MI3. During this time, the platform has seen its client base grow from 20,000 to 90,000 as well as an increase in its assets under management from €800 million to €2.8 billion. Against the backdrop of a challenging macro-economic environment, the results for 2022, which included a record inflow of €600 million and over 20,000 new customers, are evidence of the solidity and relevance of the platform developed by the Linxea teams.

Irbis has also established itself as a French leader in the design of structured products distributed through a network of financial advisors, private banks and institutions. Since it deals with a growing asset class, 2022 was a busy year for the Irbis team. Generating over €1 billion in revenue, the team used its extensive digital skills to strengthen the range of services offered and develop new features for the Irbis Map tool.

The addition of IK to the shareholder base marks a new phase in the Group’s journey. Since 2015, the Group has digitalised all its processes under the leadership of Tiphaine de Labarre, Chief Product Officer and going forward, it aims to continuously improve the platform and offer new services, while also strengthening its teams. To support these efforts, the Group hired three new recruits at the beginning of the year: Vincent Riffier, Michaël Turjeman and Sébastien Raphanaud who hold the roles of Chief Technology Officer, Director of Operations and Director of the Asset ManagementDivision respectively.

This added investment is also an opportunity for Antoine and Yves to reinforce the Group’s Management Committee which has recently seen the addition of three General Managers: Stanislas de Vasselot as Chief Financial Officer, Clément Lemaire as Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Irbis and Diane Larramendy as Chief Operations Officer who will be overseeing the Group’s digital
