Raizers joins the Empruntis Group, the French leader in financing brokers
July 19, 2022
To support its development, the real estate crowdfunding platform Raizers has joined the Empruntis Group, the leading French credit and insurance brokerage firm.
The Empruntis Group, which has been owned since the beginning of the year by a new shareholder structure consisting of the Bridgepoint investment fund and the Mentor Group (Michaux family), is positioning itself with Raizers on the buoyant real estate crowdfunding market in a context of Europeanization of the activity.
By joining forces with an expert in the sector such as the Empruntis Group, which includes the Empruntis, Partners Finances, ACE, Immopret, PRETUP networks, etc., the Raizers participatory financing platform benefits from a large origination network and thus increases its development opportunities both locally and on a European scale.
"Building on sustained growth since our creation in 2014, Maxime Pallain and I are finding, with the Empruntis Group, new growth drivers and are aiming for nearly €1 billion in collections by 2025." Grégoire Linder, co-founder of the Raizers platform
The networks of the Empruntis Group, composed of more than 1,000 employees with 330 brokerage agencies, benefit with Raizers from a new financing offer for its real estate professional customers.
"The integration of RAIZERS into the Empruntis Group consolidates our position in participative financing. We were already present in this sector with our platforms UNILEND and PRETUP as well as PARTNERS Finances PRO." Benoit Michaux, President of the Empruntis Group
The transaction was supported by the investment bank Avolta Partners, which has developed an expertise in M&A in the financial services and tech sectors.
Founded in 2014 by Gregoire Linder and Maxime Pallain, Raizers is an investment platform that allows individuals and professionals to lend to real estate developers, giving access to investment opportunities previously reserved for institutions.
Raizers has more than €240 million invested with an average return of 10% on more than 250 operations selected by its team of analysts. Since its accreditation in France by the Autorité des Marchés Financiers in 2014, Raizers has opened its doors in Switzerland, Belgium and Luxembourg.
More recently, Raizers has set up a co-financing fund that intervenes on all the operations presented.
