Asset management and trading business Valeur Grouphas announced the acquisition of LinkedTrade, a SaaS multi-dealer platform leading the way in the digital transformation of the structured products industry, to strengthen its positioning and enhance its investment solutions offerings.
LinkedTrade, a London-based FinTech company, digitally connects the Buy-side to the Sell-side and offers end-to-end automation for the conception, pricing, trading and risk monitoring of bespoke structured products.
The acquisition is hoped to enable Valeur Group to strengthen its offering by leveraging the platform’s high degree of innovation and technological expertise, resulting in greater efficiency, reduced operational risks and up-scaled distribution channels.
The agreement will allow LinkedTrade to remain independent while Valeur Group will further invest in its development.
Lorenzo Vangelisti, Founder and CEO of Valeur Group, said: “The acquisition of LinkedTrade, a leading digital platform in the industry, is a milestone in expanding our investment solutions offering as well as our technology edge. We are very proud of this agreement, which enables us to provide our clients with an increasingly comprehensive service and is the starting point to develop LinkedTrade’s technology further.”
Nicolas Gaumont-Prat, CEO of LinkedTrade Technologies, added: “We are very pleased to join Valeur Group that has strong expertise in trading services and is continuously growing and developing their clients’ offerings. We share their strategic view and founding values of professionalism, accuracy, and a result-oriented approach. It is the beginning of a successful partnership that will allow us to accelerate our developments in LinkedTrade and broaden our digital services.”
