Carlsquare establishes a new presence in Paris by bringing Alex Carré de Malberg & Berthold Stauffenberg on board

14 jan 2022

Carlsquare further strengthens its European presence with Alex Carré de Malberg and Berthold Stauffenberg, co-founders of Alexander Partners, Paris. Both are highly experienced international investment bankers who have already worked together at Rothschild for many years before starting their own M&A consultancy. This is the fourth international expansion for Carlsquare, after previously establishing itself beyond Germany in Sweden, the UK, and Denmark.

Carlsquare responds to their clients’ growing interest to invest and to partner outside their home market and therefore also recognised the importance of the French market: France is a €75 billion+ mid-cap M&A market and French technology companies have raised a record €10 billion+ in growth equity in 2021.

“We have been an active M&A advisor in Germany for many years, but as investment banking is an international business, we are delighted to grow our international footprint with Alex and Berthold. They will strengthen Carlsquare with French expertise, sector knowledge, local connections and a Paris-based team, working seamlessly with our teams in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, London, Copenhagen, and Stockholm,” says Michael Moritz, CEO and Founding Partner of Carlsquare.

“For the past six years, Alexander Partners has provided financial advice in M&A and growth equity to growing companies, in the middle market as well as to selected CAC40 corporates both in France and in cross-border situations. We believe that French business owners and entrepreneurs benefit from Carlsquare’s in-depth sector expertise and proven excellence in deal execution in the German, Nordic and UK markets, as well as the increased access to highly knowledgeable investors and international counterparties,” says Alex Carré de Malberg.

“Our existing cross-border deal flow prepositioned us as a natural partner to work with Carlsquare. With Carlsquare, our bandwidth has greatly increased, while our service offering benefits from Carlsquare‘s product knowledge,” says Berthold Stauffenberg.
