A Townhouse in Seville 8 – 29 October 2020 Online

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 12 ottobre 2020

Seville. Christie’s London – Announces the sale of a single-owner collection ‘A Townhouse in Seville’, comprising a selection of works from a beautiful property in the heart of Seville, Andalusia, southern Spain. The sale comprises 54 lots and represents a small part of a larger private collection, which was formed over the course of 40 years with a traditional, yet eclectic eye by its owners. Their own flair and iconic personal style is reflected in the fantastical, yet rich and elegant interiors which together they installed in this historic property. The works of art collected by these two connoisseurs are predominantly classical in flavour – the strong themes of Catholicism sat happily alongside Roman antiquities and paintings of mythological subjects – and in their choice of gilded finishes, rich furnishings and luxurious fabrics they paid homage to their Spanish heritage, all of which collectively reflects the deeply personal nature of their collection. Pilar González de Gregorio, Chairman, Christie’s Spain comments, ‘A Townhouse in Seville is the home of two born-and-bred Andalusians from Seville, who left for the big city at a very young age, where they would fulfil not only their dreams but those of many others. Together, they bore witness to the soul, the grace, the cheerfulness and the essence of the Andalusian women, the passionate celebration of ages-old traditions, the burst of spring, summer’s freedom, most secretive autumns and winters behind closed doors. The fields, the warmth of braziers, the magnificent countryside and the Easter pageants all served as inspiration in their creations and their collecting. Their identity is marked by an elegance with bold colour and big displays, fantasy and the enjoyment of works of art in legendary environments. The essence of Cervantes, a love for Venice and an everlasting popular craft with Arabic overtones. Essential Sevillians”. Amelia Walker, Director & Head of the Private & Iconic Collections, Christie’s London comments: ‘It is an honour to present works of art from this distinguished Spanish collection, which encompasses paintings, furniture, sculpture and objects spanning two millennia and originating from all over the world, reflecting the wide ranging and discerning taste of these two collectors. The interior photographs capture their brilliance in displaying so many diverse works of art together to form a unique series of unforgettable rooms in the magical heart of Seville’.

Supportare la crescita delle PMI europee attraverso October

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 6 dicembre 2019

Un nuovo impegno da 100 milioni di euro è stato sottoscritto dal FEI e, tra gli altri, da CNP Assurances, Bpifrance e Zencap per supportare la crescita delle PMI europee attraverso October, la prima piattaforma di P2P lending in Europa continentale per il finanziamento alle PMI. Questi investitori hanno già partecipato all’ultimo fondo istituzionale lanciato nel 2018 e il loro rinnovato impegno è un segnale di fiducia verso la piattaforma di digital lending.Questo primo closing da 100 milioni di euro permetterà a October di sostenere le PMI provenienti da tutti i settori industriali e attive in Francia, Spagna, Italia, Paesi Bassi e Germania con nuovi finanziamenti da 30.000 a 5 milioni di euro.L’impegno del FEI si colloca nell’ambito del programma “Private Credit Tailored for SMEs”. Lanciato nel 2018, il programma combina risorse del FEI e dell’Unione europea nell’ambito del Fondo europeo per gli investimenti strategici (“FEIS”), che è il pilastro centrale del Piano degli Investimenti per l’Europa, noto anche come piano Juncker. L’obiettivo del programma “Private Credit Tailored for SMEs” è quello di promuovere gli investimenti istituzionali privati a sostegno di soluzioni di finanziamento più in linea con le esigenze di mercato e su misura per le PMI europee e le piccole Mid-cap europee.
La piattaforma tecnologica October è stata lanciata nel 2015 per finanziare su larga scala le piccole e medie imprese in modo semplice, diretto e veloce. Ad oggi, oltre 700 PMI sono state finanziate da investitori istituzionali e prestatori privati. L’importo medio del finanziamento erogato alle PMI nel mese di ottobre è pari a 490.000 euro a livello Europeo. Nell’ambito del loro impegno, gli investitori istituzionali prestano automaticamente a tutti i progetti presentati sulla piattaforma insieme ad una community di oltre 20.000 prestatori privati.In Italia, October ha già erogato oltre 60 milioni di euro distribuiti su 111 prestiti. Nel mese di ottobre, la Società ha annunciato il lancio di un fondo da 30 milioni di euro dedicato esclusivamente alle PMI italiane, che ha visto, anche in questa occasione, la collaborazione di FEI in qualità di garante e di 5 tra i principali Confidi italiani, in qualità di sottoscrittori.
A proposito di October: October è il nuovo nome di Lendix. October è una piattaforma europea di finanziamento alle PMI, numero 1 in Europa continentale (fonte Altfi). October è inclusa nella classifica Next40 e fa parte delle 40 aziende tecnologiche francesi ad alto potenziale che puntano a diventare rapidamente leader tecnologici di livello mondiale. October è sostenuta, tra gli altri, da Partech, CNP Assurances, Matmut, Allianz, Idinvest, CIR Spa e Decaux Frères Investissements. October consente alle PMI di ottenere finanziamenti direttamente da prestatori privati e investitori istituzionali senza passare dalle banche. Gli investitori mettono i loro risparmi in modo utile e profittevole al servizio dell’economia reale e le imprese trovano, in modo semplice e nuovo, fonti di finanziamento indipendenti dalle banche. October ha già erogato oltre 360 milioni di euro per più di 700 progetti di sviluppo delle PMI, di diverse dimensioni e in tutti i settori. October opera in Francia, Spagna, Italia, Paesi Bassi e Germania.
A proposito del Fondo Europe per gli Investimenti (FEI): Il Fondo europeo per gli investimenti fa parte del gruppo BEI (Banca Europea per gli Investimenti). Il suo scopo principale è sostenere le micro, piccole e medie imprese (PMI) europee aiutandole ad accedere ai finanziamenti. Il FEI progetta e sviluppa strumenti di venture e growth capital, garanzie e microfinanza, che hanno come target specifico questo segmento di mercato. In tale veste il FEI promuove gli obiettivi della UE a sostegno di innovazione, ricerca e sviluppo, imprenditorialità, crescita e occupazione.A proposito del Piano Juncker: Il Piano di Investimenti per l’Europa (“Piano Juncker”) è stato lanciato a novembre 2014 per invertire la tendenza al ribasso dei bassi livelli di investimento e portare l’Europa sulla via della ripresa economica. L’approccio innovativo basato sull’uso di una garanzia del bilancio dell’UE fornita al gruppo BEI ha permesso e continua a consentire la mobilitazione di ingenti fondi pubblici e privati per investimenti in settori strategici dell’economia europea. Il Piano Juncker ha già generato investimenti per oltre 439.4 miliardi di euro a sostegno di circa un milione si start-up e PMI in tutta Europa.
