Leading global and independent private capital advisor now has eight offices globally
Paris (8 March 2021) – Campbell Lutyens is pleased to announce it has expanded its global footprint with the opening of an office in Paris, following regulatory approvals. The office supports the further growth of its fund placement and secondary business globally and enables the firm to continue supporting its clients and investors effectively following the UK’s departure from the European Union.
“We are delighted to announce the expansion of our European practice with an office in France,” said Andrew Sealey, CEO. “Given the breadth of our client and investor relationships across continental Europe, this is a natural evolution for our business, while also ensuring we can continue to serve our clients effectively.”
Over the past five years, Campbell Lutyens has advised on $51 billion in fund placement and secondaries activity in Europe. It has completed mandates for prominent investors such as Ardian, Caisse des Dépôts, CNP Assurances, Eurazeo, Kartesia, Meridiam, Natixis and Quadrille Capital.
“France was a natural choice for us given our relationships and track record in the region,” said Thomas Liaudet, Partner and Head of Global Business Development. “We believe it will enhance our offering to clients across the whole of continental Europe.”
As with the firm’s other global locations, the Paris office will provide both fund placement and secondary advisory services across private equity, infrastructure and private credit.
