years of cumulative experience

It is our mission to combine the expertise of a large advisor with the proximity, responsiveness and agility of a boutique firm through a people-centric organization. We invested in a broad, dynamic and complementary partner team to continue keeping this promise year after year.

Didier De Smet & Kristof Lybaert



We are there for the long run and invest in long-term relationships. Our clients are our sole focus.

We believe this proximity is essential to delivering added value and high quality services.

We put you at the core of our organization through our high responsiveness and senior involvement in all the advice we provide.


In many cases, you simply need an advisor who can provide an answer to your issues or questions in a smart, tailored and pragmatic way.

The focus relies on the quality of the analysis and advice, and not necessarily on a lengthy document.

With Opinion

We believe that advisory goes beyond expertise.

Giving you an accurate analysis is the foundation of our advice. However, it is through our opinion that we add value.

We are convinced that having a solid opinion and sharing it respectfully is fundamental for our clients.
