Tikehau, Revolutionary Finance Echoes

It is fashionable to celebrate innovation as a factor of growth and competitiveness. Unfortunately, it is still too often better to stigmatize this innovation in terms of finances that are immediately suspected of being a bubble-forming machine and, in the worst case, even an insidious vector of systemic risk. And even among those who simply did not make it an “enemy.” However, research shows this in abundance, innovative nations rely on a financial system that can be constant. If you look closely, what is called the digital revolution that shuffled the cards of global competition was also a financial revolution. At the very least, this was only possible thanks to the discovery of new financial instruments adapted to the emergence of start-ups, their sharp changes in scope and new temporaryities, with which some of them can live without any profit.

Structured finance, doomed to public scrutiny after the subprime crisis, is more than ever at the heart of our modern economies. Private debt financing of all types of activities, which is a specialty of Tikehau and other asset managers, brings benefits to entrepreneurs in terms of flexibility and speed, which would be much more justified on the basis of ‘4. The Industrial Revolution ”, which is now widely used to describe the perspective opened up by artificial intelligence and blockchains. Tools in which the young French sister Lazard and Rothschild excel, such as unitranche debts, are crucial for these medium-sized companies, which France lacks, just as its know-how in the field of CSR funds has become particularly scarce for obvious reasons. We say too little.
