With this appointment, Harvest continues the process of the founders’ handover which began at the start of 2019 and continues its transformation to achieve its ambitions.
30 years after it was set up, the company is a leading mid-sized company in its market in France, recognized for its expertise, with a strong desire to accelerate its growth and open up to new territories.
A fintech in an expertise market
30 years ago Jean-Michel DUPIOT and Brice PINEAU set up Harvest, a fintech ahead of its time.
Dedicated to asset management and finance, the company develops digital solutions for all players in the asset management advice chain (producers, distributors, intermediaries, end customers). Its motto: to liberate asset management advice. Thanks to the integration of business constraints (regulations, compliance, taxation, etc.), digitisation, and the automation of business processes, its solutions free up energy and help promote high value-added informed advice.
The company has built its success on its dual expertise: technological on the one hand, by integrating innovations that were meaningful or effective in its solutions, and business on the other hand, thanks to its perfect handling of all aspects of asset management (financial savings, taxation, contingency, pension, financing, etc.).
This very specific expertise enables it to develop and consolidate its position with more than 4,000 clients (banks, insurance companies, management companies, asset management advisers, family offices, chartered accountants, tax lawyers, notaries, etc.) thanks to the development of customized solutions as well as a turnkey software suite, the building blocks of which have now been adopted by the entire profession.
“Of course, our achievements speak for themselves and enable us to develop very long-term relationships with our customers, who are extremely loyal to us, and we thank them for that. What makes us different? We offer our clients the perfect mix of business expertise, the ability to support our solutions – and in our field this is far from anecdotal – and technological innovation. They know that our solutions are durable and reliable. » says Brice PINEAU, co-chairman and co-founder.
Today the « small » start-up has become a fine mid-sized company, which really sets it apart in its market. With nearly 300 employees, proud of their company that they have labelled a Great Place To Work, Harvest has understood how to stay agile and innovate while increasing its size and structure.
