2016 Finance Awards

International Finance Awards 2016 / 11 OE160047 Camden Associates is a corporate finance house with a particular specialty in international financing. Three years ago, acting on client feedback, the firm created Camden Realty, a dedicated division specialising in real estate. Jean-Claude discusses the firm’s mission and how it aims to achieve this. “Here at Camden Associates our real focus is really the changing economy which causes a brutal change to valuation across economic sectors. Yahoo refused a $45 billion offer only a few years ago to accept a $5 billion offer a few weeks ago. These challenges are what we have to deal with on a daily basis, and are central to our approach. “Our specialty is really to deal with rapidly changing real estate landscape for specialised types of properties always prestigious and often listed buildings.” According to Jean-Claude, the firm’s success is dependent on its dedication to clients and its innovative thinking. “What sets our firm apart is old fashioned dedication to a client’s problem and a belief that creativity is at the heart of every solution, thinking outside the box. This being said we also have a unique knowledge and expertise when it comes to old properties hit by a changing local economy which is very useful and differentiates us from our competitors.” As his final comment Jean-Claude is keen to emphasise the firm’s exciting plans for the future as it seeks to build upon its current success. “At Camden Associates we have many great projects coming up and are looking forward to a prosperous future. We only hope for more great projects to keep us busy in the months and years to come.” Company: Camden Associates Realty Name: Jean-Claude Gonneau Email: jcg@camdenassociates.co.uk Web Address:www.camdenassociates.co.uk Address:27 Hill street London W1J 5LP Telephone:020 7290 9218 Camden Associates is a specialised investment boutique with a focus on emerging markets including biotech, tech, growth and changing companies.
