2015:OPENING OF THE singapore OFFICE
In early 2015, Astris made the strategic decision that a physical presence was required in order to expand our operations and client contact in Asia-Pacific. Early 2015 witnessed the founding of our Singapore office, where the team has been particularly focused on M&A transactions, development advisory and financing in the energy and transportation sectors.
European Operations, Renewable Energy
In early 2009, Astris' team expanded to include the senior executives who were central to Dexia’s early positioning in the renewable energy sector, expanding the Firm’s reach to the European market, where we have since then secured more than 15 advisory mandates in the wind and solar sectors.
In late 2008 as a result of a shift in Dexia’s corporate strategy, Astris’ management completed a management buyout, consolidating control and ownership of the Company. At the same time, Astris expanded its base of operations, with permanent staff now based in Washington DC, Mexico City, and Paris. Astris is now 100% owned by management.
Founding of Astris
Astris Finance was founded in 2000 as a Latin America-focused, majority-owned subsidiary of Dexia, the European-based world leader in infrastructure and public finance. From the beginning, the team was dedicated to deep sector knowledge and financial savvy.
