International expansion—a concern felt by a growing number of midmarket and intermediate-sized companies—has always been central to Siparex’s approach.
Siparex helps speed up its investee companies’ cross-border expansion involving acquisitions, partner searches, or the creation of subsidiaries.

1/ In TUNISIA in cooperation with Africinvest
Fonds de Co-Localisation Franco-Tunisien, a €20 million bilateral fund that is a 50/50 joint venture between Bpifrance (France) and Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations (Tunisia), is managed and promoted jointly by Siparex and Africinvest. It invests in intermediate-sized companies from France and Tunisia that demonstrate strong growth potential and are capable of expanding their business in the other partner country.
2/ In CANADA in cooperation with Desjardins Capital
The Transatlantic Fund (€75 million) is co-managed by Siparex and Desjardins Capital and makes joint investments in French and Quebec small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
In order to accelerate and ensure low-risk cross-border expansion for its investee companies, the Siparex Group has created an international team whose 14 members serve as country advisers.
This dedicated organization, Siparex Cap International, provides a comprehensive range of services both upstream (international strategy, business development) and downstream (cross-border expansion and transactions). Siparex Cap International relies on its partnerships with Business France, which is an expert in international business development issues, and Pramex, France’s leading consultant on cross-border expansion and transactions. Since its inception, Siparex Cap International has conducted an average of over one advisory mission per month.
