GEREJE Corporate Finance has been supporting since 2015 BEL AIR FINE ART, a group of modern & contemporary art galleries founded by François CHABANIAN and his son Gregory in 2004.
After a first fundraising round with APICAP to finance the launch of a gallery in Venice in November 2015, APICAP has decided to trust BEL AIR FINE ART again in 2016 and 2017, alongside the public institutional fund BPI. These funding rounds have enabled the opening of a gallery in Cannes, a showroom in Paris and a new main gallery in Saint-Tropez.
BPI has renewed its trust once again after INITIATIVE & FINANCE, a key historical player in the financing support of French SMES since 1984, has taken shares in the company. This will enable BEL AIR FINE ART to further structure and develop its activities, while already considered one of the first European players in this field.
BEL AIR FINE ART group is already active in Switzerland (Geneva, Gstaad, Verbier, Crans-Montana), in France (Paris – Place des Vosges; Saint-Tropez; Cannes), Italy (Venice, Pietra Santa); Spain (Marbella) and Belgium with its brand-new gallery (Knokke-Le-Zoute). The group also has a strong global footprint through international art shows and exhibitions, in particular in Libanon and the US (Miami).
