Financial company ODDO BHF in talks to buy Paris-based Quilvest Banque Privee

·1-min read

PARIS (Reuters) - Financial services company ODDO BHF is in talks to buy Paris-based Quilvest Banque Privee, which manages around 2 billion euros ($2.3 billion) in assets, the companies said on Thursday.

The takeover talks for Quilvest Banque Privee come as the private banking sector's smaller players seek mergers or acquisitions to compete with their bigger rivals.

"This merger is a response to Quilvest Banque Privee's desire to join forces with a family-owned financial group that represents one of the most successful companies on the Paris stock exchange and embodies a rare dynamism in the European landscape," said Quilvest Banque Privee president Eric Libault.

ODDO BHF is an independent Franco-German financial services group, and the company says it has more than 125 billion euros of assets under management.
