Centerview, the boutique investment bank with a reputation for paying outrageously well, continues to grow in Paris. He is believed to have recruited Yann Krychowski, the former co-head of France and Benelux banking at Barclays.
Neither Barclays nor Centerview nor Krychowski himself responded to a request for comment on his whereabouts, but Krychowski is definitely not at Barclays. Sources say he quit a few weeks ago and is no longer on Barclays’ system.
Krychowski had been at Barclays for almost 12 years after joining Citi in October 2010. Centerview opened a Paris office in April 2020, led by Matthieu Pigasse, the former head of investment banking at Lazard. He has since hired more than 25 people, although some have already moved on. – Grégoire Heuzé, who joined Rothschild in March 2021, left in October due to apparent disagreements over strategy.
Centerview operates a partnership model and is known to compensate its partners exceptionally well. In the year to March 2021, 21 partners in the UK shared £28m. However, one of those partners was a corporation, Centerview Partners UK Holdings.
Neither Barclays nor Centerview rank in the top 10 French companies for M&A in the first half according to Dealogic.
