Growth capital

Working together to enhance your company's growth

CM-CIC Investissement is a leading player in growth capital. We invest the own money of the group via our CM-CIC Investissement SCR subsidiary and that of third-party investors via the FIP and FCPI funds managed by CM-CIC Capital Privé.

We support a wide range of companies at all stages of their development, without focusing on any particular sector.

Our investments are generally family-owned companies, usually located in the French regions, requiring equity investment ranging from €0,5m to €25m or more.

Investments based on partnerships

CM-CIC Investissement develops close ties with the companies we invested in, taking a flexible and partnership-based approach to its relations with management and shareholders. Managers remain in control of managing the company and making strategic decisions.

Our close-knit, responsive teams actively support the company's plans with a local presence.

Our aim is to maximise value over the medium to long term, for the benefit of all shareholders.

Our teams, located in Paris and in the French regions, select projects on the basis of clearly defined human and financial criteria:

  • solid management commitment,,
  • companies with strong positions on their markets or leadership in a niche area,
  • growth potential, both through organic growth and acquisitions,
  • an appropriate development strategy.

Custom support

CM-CIC Investissement is a leading national operator in France, and is able to co-invest with other providers of growth capital. We have strong operational links in the French regions, with five teams in Bordeaux, Lille, Lyon, Nantes and Strasbourg.

For investments of over €25m and up to €80m or beyond, the national CM-CIC Capital & Transmission team analyses the projects.
