Hear from the Client
“Privatal have been efficient, fast and flexible in helping AnaCap to find the right CFO for one of our portfolio companies. Their ‘Finance Only’ focus gave us comfort in the depth and quality of the candidates presented to us. We much appreciate Privatal’s Support and have gone back to them for more mandates since the initial engagement.”

AnaCap Partners backed Fintus is a leading provider of low-code software for the financial services sector. The Fintus technology complements existing core banking systems. It enables its customer base to use the low-code platform in an agile and flexible manner to position itself well with retail and commercial customers. It has a solid grip on the DACH market and is now expanding its platform into Europe.
AnaCap needed a full cycle CFO as it didn't have a senior enough finance person on acquisition. They needed an ultra-experienced CFO (to have done everything from initial set-up, through Buy&Build to exit) on a small-cap budget.
Privatal were retained on the search, with time and budget being of essence.
AnaCap retained Privatal in early November; by mid-November, we had a signed contract with a CFO veteran who took a significant pay-cut to join the business.

"Privatal have now placed me in my third consecutive CFO Role. Their exceptional expertise in the Private Equity world meant that with each new search, I had multiple interviews lined up in just days.
Their DACH team, led me very competently through five parallel processes. He kept me constantly informed throughout and was an invaluable party for me. Within 1 month of embarking on the joint search, I signed an Interim CFO role with a superb PE House. I can clearly recommend Mark and Privatal from a candidate perspective."
