Customers and counterparties

The merger between Ciméa Patrimoine and the Cyrus Group is part of a common desire to create a leading private asset management company in the Grand Ouest region. The 56 employees of the new regional entity now manage nearly one billion euros in six offices: La Roche-sur-Yon, Nantes, Angers, Vannes, Le Mans and Rennes.

To support them in this structuring operation, the partners of Ciméa Patrimoine entrusted PAX Corporate Finance with the task of soliciting the appropriate partners. At the end of a disputed process, the six shareholders of Ciméa Patrimoine chose the Cyrus Group, which they join as partners to participate in the development of the new entity.

With this operation, the Cyrus Group is pleased to reach 9.3 billion euros under management with four external growth operations carried out in 2021 for a total of 3.7 billion euros, Financière Conseil, Altixia Reim, Amplegest and Ciméa Patrimoine.


According to Jean-François Boudaud, Managing Director of Ciméa Patrimoine: "CIMEA has been developing strongly for several years and we wanted to secure the quality of our tailor-made services by joining forces with GROUPE CYRUS, a leader in France, sharing the same corporate values, the same client DNA and the same vision of the profession and the business. The exchanges between the teams confirmed the respective skills and the challenges of this merger to always be one step ahead in serving our clients.
Meyer Azogui, Chairman of the Cyrus Group, said: "The seven Cyrus offices in the West, with more than €1 billion in assets and more than 50 employees and partners, represent a solid and complementary team to make the Cyrus brand resonate in the region. We will thus be even closer to our clients and will strengthen our presence with our partners in accountancy, lawyers and notaries.
Bertrand Demesse, Partner at Bridgepoint Development Capital: "This acquisition enables Cyrus to strengthen its territorial presence in the West region and is in line with the Group's proactive consolidation policy. Since BDC joined the management team in 2020, Cyrus has acquired six companies with a total of €3.9bn in assets under management: V2A Patrimoine, ACS Finances, Financière Conseil Altixia Reim, Amplegest and Ciméa Patrimoine.
