On 23rd February 2017, the Parisian premises of « The Game » hosted ChetWode’s third annual seminar.
A seminar rich in information
Before an audience from all over Europe, the main session included presentations at a brisk pace, on the following themes :
- Transaction Management & Middle Office
- Valuation & Expertise
- 2016 Results & 2017 Objectives
On this occasion, Jean-Baptiste Magnen, Président of ChetWode, emphasised the good results recorded over the last 2 years, in particular 216M€ financed from a total of 24 closed transactions, of which 10 via the Berivo fund.
Banking partners Société Générale Equipment Finance and La Banque Postale, were also invited to speak, highlighting opportunities for synergies between banks and alternative finance players.
A seminar rich in adrenaline
The participants were then invited to proceed to the game rooms for an escape game session where the nerves of the teams were severely tested and which proved fatal to some of them.
In this regard, we deeply regret the loss of 4 of our co-workers, who despite their best efforts and the help of their colleagues could not escape on time. We wish them good luck for the continuation and we all share a compassionate thought for them !
Fortunately, the outcome was more pleasant for some of us !
Finally we all gathered for a cheerful « cheese & wine » party where the ChetWode Awards closed the day !
Our warmest congratulations to the winners : Chris, Etienne and the Spanish Team !
