Sales - 2020

Sale of AGEF to Finaxi Group

AGEF Finance Courtage secures what it needs to achieve its goals and continue its development by joining Finaxy Group, a leading French insurance broker

AGEF Finance Courtage – a credit broker for business managers, farmers and individuals – has managed to become one of the leading credit brokers in Brittany in just 5 years.

The company is pursuing its location policy in Brittany whilst also continuing to expand beyond its borders. In this regard, the co-founders Arnaud Guilleux and Emmanuel Frattini asked Largillière Finance to identify a partner for their company.

The founders wanted a solid partner who could support AGEF Finance Courtage’s impressive development, sharing a similar corporate culture and developing strong ties. After meeting several potential partners identified by Largillière Finance, Arnaud and Emmanuel chose Finaxy Group.

With this transaction, Finaxy Group has developed a new activity closely linked with its insurance brokerage activity for companies. AGEF Finance Courtage will remain under the operational leadership of its founding managers Arnaud and Emmanuel, who join Finaxy Group.
