AnaCap, a market-leading private equity investor specialised in partnering with founders and entrepreneurial management teams, across services, technology and software within the European financial ecosystem, today announces that it has signed an agreement for the acquisition of a majority stake in Yard Reaas, a leading independent platform providing investment, property management and valuation services for institutional investors and banks.

Headquartered in Milan and with offices in Rome, Paris and London, Yard Reaas has more than 30 years of experience, providing end-to-end investment services and property management solutions to a diversified customer base composed of local and international institutional investors and banks. Over the past three years it has monitored investments worth €1.5 billion, performed assets valuations in excess of €30 billion as well as managing a real estate portfolio worth over €13 billion on behalf of first-class institutions.

Yard Reaas is led by CEO Emanuele Bellani, alongside a highly entrepreneurial founding management team formed by Paolo Datti and Paolo Perrella, which will continue to drive growth for the platform under AnaCap ownership in Italy and internationally.

This transaction will enable the Yard Reaas leadership team to significantly accelerate its international expansion strategy in Southern Europe as it seeks to execute a strong pipeline of acquisitions, in pursuit of becoming a leading consolidation platform in its sector across Italy, Spain and France respectively.

AnaCap’s extensive track record in technology investment will help accelerate Yard Reaas ambitious plan to become the leading tech-enabled service provider for its market. This will include the advanced use of technology, data, and analytics to offer a vast range of innovative solutions to clients such as Automated Valuation Models (“AVM”) and automated ESG ratings that align with the recent European ‘Green Homes’ directive, as well as optimising its internal processes.

Alberto Sainaghi, Managing Director at AnaCap, commented:
“We are thrilled to partner with Emanuele and the Yard Reaas leadership team as we seek to build upon their impressive achievements in recent years and their excellent market reputation. Moving forward, AnaCap’s vision is for Yard Reaas to become the leading tech-enabled provider in Southern Europe for the sector, serving customers across multiple geographies and asset classes.”.
