Tikehau Capital acquires Filiassur stake

Tikehau Capital has acquired a stake in Filiassur to support the company’s expansion and growth in Europe. Tikehau is investing EUR30 million in the firm, a leading French direct distributor of personal insurance.

Filiassur was founded in 2007. Following a period of rapid growth in France driven by its expertise in designing and marketing innovative niche insurance solutions, it now has 300,000 policyholders. Filiassur operates in a market with a large untapped potential: ageing populations and the progressive roll-back of social security systems mean that demand for tailored personal insurance solutions now far outstrips supply. 
Tikehau Capital’s investment will provide Filiassur with a fresh impetus as it begins a new phase in its development, focusing on both organic and external growth in France and Europe. 
Filiassur CEO Denis Bizien says: “Tikehau Capital’s hallmark entrepreneurial mindset coupled with its financial heft and proactive support will be of huge benefit for the Filiassur group as it steps up its development over the next few months. Both myself and all of the Filiassur teams are absolutely delighted with this partnership.”
Tikehau Capital co-founder Antoine Flamarion, says: “We are delighted to be partnering with this dynamic and ambitious management team which has managed to establish Filiassur as France’s leading direct distributor of personal insurance. We firmly believe in Filiassur’s potential and in its management’s ability to accelerate the company’s growth and consolidate its market leadership.”
