A Firm Unlike Any Other

We advise. We execute. We invest.

 

Uncompromising Partnership

VERSO is the union of individual Partners who have made the single decision to gather their expertise, their capabilities and their network in the center. Like any Partnership, it takes a high degree of Commitment and hard work to achieve one's Vision. The Governance of VERSO has been designed to last centuries, giving our Partners a home for their work and their Achievements.

Operating

Model

VERSO has designed a unique OM in order to i) optimize its time at our clients' side, ii) reduce effortlessly any risk and inefficiencies and iii) provide Partners world class resources to generate tremendous impact. No compromise will ever be made on high-level delivery and execution. Resilience is found in every engagement we take, every promise we make.

Proprietary

Tech

Technology has influenced the most recent disruptions affecting Finance and Banking, globally. VERSO owns its proprietary software and applications in order to remain ahead of the tech curve and to rely on advanced Artificial Intelligence to support complex transactions. With VERSO App, our Partners offer their Clients access to our off-market deal flow and to ConcluderTM, a smart transactional module.

Our

Portfolio

VERSO is a high-conviction investor. Our investment theses involve over time looking at the world we live in and visualizing the word we wish to live in. 

 

Unlike most PE and VC investment and asset management firms, VERSO has chosen to invest in a sharply-selected and limited number of companies ; those rare companies. that trigger in us the intellectual curiosity, the business stamina and the personal intimacy we seek.

VERSO is sensitive to impact investing and to human capital development. Our overall conviction is that humanity must evolve from the industrial era to the sustainable era, an age of wisdom that should ultimately strive to create a relevant system of education inspiring self-confidence and resilience, a better food system that disrupt its reliance on animal-based primary products and a well-thought, equally-distributed energetic grid to provide the power, water and access every human requires to grow and to offer their families a better life.
