Renaissance assured the succession of Bandi SA in 2015 by means of an internal managerial succession. Yves Bandi, former owner and CEO of Bandi SA :

"I was immediately seduced by the option proposed by Renaissance. It assured my succession, took account of the need for customer service continuity and respected our employees’ interests. Throughout our discussions, the Renaissance team showed a great understanding of the way a family business works and of its needs, and demonstrated its commitment to finding pragmatic solutions. Renaissance also gave me the opportunity to remain active in my own company as Chairman of the Board of Directors and a minority shareholder. This was a great opportunity for me. The industry continues to fascinate me and I wanted to remain involved with our customers whom I always meet with great pleasure."


Renaissance took part in financing the growth of Neo Advertising SA in 2015 to provide the substantial investments involved in winning a new customer.

Christian Vaglio, CEO and co-founder: “Renaissance was a logical partner for our business. The long-term focus and local nature of pension funds was decisive in our choice, taking into account our clients and employees. At the request of Renaissance, we put in place a clear governance and a Board of Directors consisting of independent members with genuine entrepreneurial experience in our sector. This proved to contribute significant added value in our operational and strategic reflections.”


Renaissance assured the succession of Asic Robotics SA in 2013. The owners managed the company until 2015, when an internal managerial succession plan was put in place. Paul Beutler, the former co-owner and CEO of Asic Robotics SA:

“The partnership with Renaissance quickly emerged as an obvious solution since it allowed our company to remain independent and also to impart fresh dynamism to our development. The changeover took place gradually, relying on younger in-house managers to ensure continuity for our loyal customers.”
