Christel Bapt has been accompanying and advising investors for more than 15 years. In 2010 he decided to take over the business he had created in 2004 with Altedia IC in order to create Cedrus Partners with the ambition of making it the first independent financial investment consultancy in France.
7 years later, the objective is achieved with more than € 17 billion in advisory assets, strong financial development and a team that has grown considerably in the last three years. Cedrus Partners was selected among the champions of growth in France by Les Echos on more than 10,000 companies surveyed.
Today, the company has offices in Paris and Bordeaux.
One of Cedrus Partners’ strengths lies in the diversity of its clients: family office, foundations – clubs, institutions, large corporates…
These customers are extremely loyal, some have been working with us for over 10 years.
We operate on all asset classes, listed assets (bonds, equities) as well as unlisted (Private Equity, Infrastructures …) and work with international and local asset managers.
We offer our customers the same quality of services, whatever their size, adapting each of our businesses to their needs, including the most complex ones.
In 2016, we decided to accelerate our development by structuring a high-level research division and customer relations centers headed by a dedicated team.
The pursuit of our development requires the continuous improvement of our tools and the recruitment of new talented people to pursue our quest for excellence.
We work on a human scale so we are close to you, which allows us to be available and build long-term relationships among our teams. Adaptability and responsiveness are our key words.
Our team is made up of experienced professionals with technical and complementary expertise, working according to the best market standards.
We offer our clients constructive analyzes of innovative and high value-added solutions from rigorously selected suppliers.
Our management and our business model help us to prevent any conflict of interest. The company is held by the two founding partners. Our remuneration is totally transparent for our clients.
Cedrus Partners Endowment Fund
Because we want to make sense of what we do, we have chosen to create an endowment fund which mission is to help revitalize the French territories and the threatened traditional trades.
The Management decided to devote 1% of our annual turnover to this project.
Developing a sense of commitment
At the end of the year, we send a list of the charities we support to our clients, letting them choose the project they care about and make a donation on their behalf. We regularly present patrons to the charities and foundations that we follow.
Involving our employees
Our employees are encouraged to donate their professional and personal time to the causes that matter to them: donation of skills, fundraising during sports events. There are many opportunities to get involved.
