Jean-Philippe is passionate about advising clients on investment banking transactions. In a nutshell, acquisitions, disposals, mergers, IPO advisory or fundraising. In 2016, with 15+ years of experience in the City with Paribas, Deutsche Bank, Greenhill and Jefferies, and some £25bn+ of M&A deals under his belt, he went the entrepreneurial route and founded Verdier & Co. Corporate Advisory.
The concept is to turn the business model on its head, whilst keeping the best, certainly leaving aside what is broken in traditional banks. Simply said, it’s about being advice-led and not product/transaction driven, nurturing genuine trust-based and long-term relationship with one’s clients, and thriving on collaborative and respectful employee dynamics. Always true to the core values of the firm of “Excellence, Perseverance, Results”.
After 6 years of existence, with 10 employees, the firm is focused on Tech, Healthcare and GreenTech/ClimateTech and advises international corporates like Fujitsu and Apleona on M&A transactions and retained corporate finance topics.
