Perwyn Advisors Opens Paris Office
British private equity and growth capital investor Perwyn Advisors is opening an office in Paris, the firm's first permanent location outside of the U.K. The news comes on the back of two investments in France, and the Paris office will act as a platform for further investments both in France and in neighbouring countries. Antoine Vanderhulst, Partner, will be joined full time in Paris by John Gallagher, Investment Director, and Julie Pelcener, Associate.
Andrew Wynn, Founder and Managing Partner, said:
“France has been one of our core markets for a number of years and we are delighted to invest further into this market by opening an office with a dedicated investment team. There are many attractive French companies that we seek to partner with and believe we can best serve them with a team on the ground.”
Heinz Holsten, Chief Investment Officer, said:
“We are having a great experience backing entrepreneurial companies such as Isla Delice and Keobiz. Perwyn’s differentiated approach to investing resonates well with French founders and entrepreneurs. With the team now on the ground we can develop closer relationships and build on our early success.”
Perwyn’s first investment in France was Isla Delice in 2018 followed by Keobiz in 2020. Perwyn is actively looking for new Private Equity opportunities both in France but also across Europe more broadly.
