Poised to intensify the collaboration on the French-German axis in the aftermath of the Brexit vote
“We are convinced that in the aftermath of the Brexit vote traditional continental European financial centers will gain in importance and we want to play an active role in the establishment of more truly European players who see the pan-European market as their home market.” comments Andreas Thümmler, Managing Partner of ACXIT Capital Partners.
“With Germany as France’s most important trading partner to date and growing importance of inter-European relationships, clients of both sides of the Rhine will strongly benefit from our partnership.” said Adrien Tourres, Managing Partner of PAX Corporate Finance.
Both companies are confident to have built a strong basis for fostering German-French cross-border activities and collaboration with view on M&A, capital raising and capital market activities for clients in Germany and France.
