Investment Banking Consulting

Be able to seize growth opportunities at any time thanks to financial resilience

At the heart of the business world, investment banking advisory and support services are the business lines that mobilize the most specialized and complementary in-house resources. That's why our multi-disciplinary team provides you with a precise and reliable analysis of your company's financial and non-financial data, advises you on the best adjustments to be made, and helps you negotiate fund-raising with the various financing players (equity, LBO, bonds, short-term debt, etc.).

Optimize your company's financing structure through financial engineering


External growth is a key stage in a company's development, requiring a sound strategy. Developing and implementing this strategy requires a wide range of skills, from market research and target identification to financial data analysis, negotiation and contractualization. Our multi-disciplinary teams (finance, legal, management control, CSR, etc.) combine their expertise to support you right through to the integration of the new entity, according to your needs.


Whatever your company's growth and development plans, it will certainly be necessary to raise capital. This complex operation requires a coherent forecast, a solid financial file and compliance with national (and even European or international, depending on the funds sought) standards. Canovia's teams can help you with the development of a financing strategy in line with your objectives, the valuation of your company, the creation of a sustainable financing package and the negotiation with banks.

Structured Finance

Canovia's Finance team can help you structure and finance, in France and abroad, investment transactions based on collateral, or complex, structured loans, in line with your long-term objectives.

Assistance with sensitive negotiations

Our in-depth understanding of the local area and the economic and social stakes at national, European and international level, as well as our network, allows us to support you effectively in the most sensitive negotiations with your various stakeholders (investors, banking pool, shareholders, etc.).

Our dedicated team

When I co-founded LEM3N, now Canovia, I wanted to promote the emergence of sustainable finance, with the aim of finding balanced models between the environment, the economy, finance, people and the earth.
Founding President
Sciences Po Paris graduated, I began my career with a major network in the social finance sector. Motivated by the company's project and values, I joined Canovia as an analyst, to extend my commitment to serving entrepreneurs and the local community.
Financial Analysis
With a PhD in Neuroscience, I began my professional career by creating a Start-Up in the Medical Devices sector before joining the regional incubator of Burgundy Region. I joined Canovia Banque d'Affaires at the beginning of 2022 as a Business Banker to contribute to the link between customers and all regional stakeholders.
Investment Banker
With 25 years' experience in corporate finance, I joined Canovia in March 2022 to help bring demanding, innovative solutions to business leaders, and support them in optimizing the management of their financial and non-financial data.
Financial controller
Specialized in consolidation since obtaining my DSCG in 2017, I have decided to bring my expertise to Canovia from the end of 2022, finding an opportunity to blossom within a team of diversified professions in a company that shares my values.
