CIC Capital: the international partner for entrepreneurs

CM-CIC Investissement is expanding outside of France under the CIC Capital brand, which is specific to its international activities.

Active support for our operations in Europe and North America

Having already developed its offering in Canada, CIC Capital is now expanding its offering to the following countries :

  • USA,
  • Germany,
  • the United Kingdom,
  • Switzerland.
This geographical expansion mirrors one that has been achieved by the CIC group, which has a solid presence in Germany (Targo Bank, BECM), Switzerland (CIC Suisse), the UK (CIC London) and the USA (CIC New York).

Powerful support for entrepreneurs

CIC Capital has two goals :

  • Providing active support to its portfolio companies expanding abroad.
  • Investing in small and mid-Cap companies in the five countries where CIC Capital settled, to provide equity and assistance in their expansion either local or international.

CIC Capital utilizes the expertise and experience of CM-CIC Investissement's teams, that has invested €2.1 billion in around 350 companies, and applying them outside of France.

CIC Capital adjusts its offering in line with the requirements and constraints of its target national markets.
Its experience in the various segments of private equity, together with a long-term strategy made possible by its own extensive resources, allow CIC Capital to have a unique market position as a preferred partner to companies and their managers.
