International accounting and advisory alliance Geneva Group International (GGI) has added two new member firms in Europe.

Geneva Group International already had a presence in France, through alliances with Hans & Associés, a firm with 30 offices across the North of France; Aliantis, a firm with six offices in the Rhône-Alpes region; Paris-headquartered firms Herald, DAS, Fidag and Troy & Associés; and Valbonne-based Anthony & Cie.

The addition of Arcéane adds a presence in five cities: Paris, Lille, Lyon, Nantes and Bordeaux. Arcéane is an M&A consulting firm that advises managers and shareholders of small and medium-sized businesses on acquisitions, divestitures, financial engineering and corporate finance, and fundraising. The consultancy specialises in the IT, technology, distribution, and manufacturing sectors.

Arcéane is led by around ten senior professionals, most of whom are former business owners or have a dealmaking background in investment banking, private equity or the larger M&A consultancies.
