Fast-growing fintech player in the French profit-sharing and retirement savings markets

Eres is a leading French financial technology player within employee profit sharing and retirement savings in France. The Company focuses on the fragmented and high growth small to medium-sized enterprise segment, covering the design, implementation, monitoring and management of savings products. It addresses the market both indirectly through a large network of independent distributors and directly for larger clients.

IK Partners acquired a majority stake in Eres from the management team and Parquest Capital in July 2019.

What Attracted Us to the Business

  • Large and fast-growing market
  • The Company has experienced organic growth due to open architecture and well-invested technology platform
  • Favourable competitive dynamics
  • Dynamic distribution network

Our Value Creation Strategy

We are working alongside management to:

  • Organically grow the business by expanding distribution network, investing in the IT platform and enhancing user experience;
  • Use the diversified distribution network to push additional products in wealth management or insurance; and
  • Potentially execute a buy-and-build strategy to expand product offering.
