Walliance Buys Lymo, the First French Real Estate Crowdfunding Platform

Walliance, with the inclusion of Lymo Finance, has solidified its position with over €160 million transacted, boasting around 98,000 registered users and more than 8,000 investors. As the first Italian portal authorized to operate in France since January 2020, Walliance recently acquired a European license, allowing Spanish investors to participate in projects across Spain, Italy, and France.




Walliance cemented its future in Europe. The real estate financing platform has purchased Lymo Finance, the first crowdfunding platform founded in France in 2013, which has raised €50 million in investment, according to the company statement.

With the operation in which the co-founder of Lymo, Jean-Bapstiste Vayleaux, has been appointed head of development for the group’s French market, Walliance acquires a company that has a strong presence in the French market and a track record of more than one decade.

Therefore, after the launch of Walliance in Spain, which took place this year with a promotion in Tarragona, this acquisition represents a move with which the company will be able to strengthen its position in the real estate crowdfunding sector in Europe.
