FIMAT, fintech, which objective is to digitalize the negotiation process of the NEU CP market, and led by Pascal Lauffer, announces the entry into its capital of its strategic partner ANEO, an expert in business transformation through management consulting and information systems.
Strategic partner of FIMAT since its creation, ANEO contributes directly to the technical development of the Fintech and its promotion. ANEO's investment in FIMAT validates the company's evolution, the quality of its project and also concretizes a fruitful and quality working relationship at the service of a large community of users. The objective: initiate a new stage in the growth of the company founded by Pascal Lauffer.
"The pace of transformation in the financial industry is accelerating and growing thanks to new technologies but also new working methods. We are aware that to win, we must always execute faster and better. I am proud of the quality of our teams and what we have already accomplished. FIMAT is probably the most agile and efficient organization I have had the opportunity to lead during my 25 years of career in technology and finance. Our partnership with ANEO has been invaluable in achieving and maintaining this performance level. ANEO's entry into FIMAT's capital will allow us to do even more. "says Pascal Lauffer, CEO of FIMAT.
Thierry Pécoud, ANEO partner and member of FIMAT board, explains: "ANEO, a reference company in France in the financial sector, has been working since 2012 to implement innovative solutions for its clients. This capital and industrial partnership with a financial start-up in BlockChain strengthens our position and underpins our growth strategy. The early collaboration between ANEO and FIMAT is thus anchored in the long term. Very committed, relevant and agile, we got to know Pascal Lauffer's team well: this human criterion reinforced our decision to invest in the company. Beyond financial investment, our technological and methodological support, as well as our knowledge in capital markets, will contribute to FIMAT's success. »
