Tikehau Capital said in a statement Monday that potential targets include asset management platforms, fintech companies, insurance services and a variety of financial services companies. The focus will be on “scalable platforms that offer strong profit growth potential,” he added, noting that this will be the first of several SPACs he plans to launch.
Tikehau Capital did not provide details on the amount its SPAC wants to raise, saying only that the four sponsors plan to jointly invest at least 10% of that amount. Arnault has a net worth of $ 114 billion, making him the fourth richest person in the world and the richest individual in Europe, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
The SPAC will carry out an IPO in Amsterdam, the latest in a series of victories to exchange the Dutch city. Euronext Amsterdam is one of the biggest beneficiaries of the changes, which means that EU financial institutions cannot trade European stocks on British stock exchanges after Brexit.
