Paris, 01/30/2023 – Diot-Siaci, the French and European leader in insurance brokerage, announces the strengthening of its Structured Credit and Political Risk activities with the arrival of Jean-Christophe Cavanna as Director of CPRI (Credit and Political Risk Insurance) and exclusive negotiations for the acquisition of the specialized broking firm, Sol Mondo, based in Paris.
Given the needs of corporates, banks and financial institutions in the structured finance market, and the securing of financing for major international projects, it is important to be able to count on experts.

To face these challenges, essential to preserving the economic sovereignty of European companies and banks, the Diot-Siaci Group is increasing its investments in this sector with the acquisition of Sol Mondo, a specialized firm set up by France Arnaud, accompanied by the investment bank Largillière Finance.

To support this client offering, the Diot-Siaci Group announces the strengthening of its teams, with the appointment of Jean-Christophe Cavanna to lead the division.

Aged 36 and currently Head of Structured Credit and Political Risk, at Coface, for France, UK and Ireland, Jean-Christophe's mission will be to develop Diot-Siaci’s service and advisory offer.

The Diot-Siaci Group is the leader in brokerage specializing in credit insurance, surety and financing on the French market. It also has a strong international presence as a member of the ICBA network, which brings together the largest independent global brokers specializing in credit insurance and receivables financing.

Founded in 1999, Sol Mondo is headed up by France Arnaud who has built up in-depth and recognized expertise in the area of political risk.

The pooling of resources currently deployed by Sol Mondo, Diot-Siaci and the arrival of additional resources testify to the ambition of the Diot-Siaci Group to play a major role in this specialty, currently dominated by Anglo-Saxon firms.

"The creation of an offer for corporates, banks and financial institutions, in structured finance and political risks, under the direction of Jean-Christophe Cavanna, is a new step which aims to preserve the strategic independence of our clients" welcome the Group CEO Diot-Siaci, Cédric Charpentier.

“Joining Diot-Siaci is an opportunity for Sol Mondo to accelerate the deployment of its innovative offers to major corporate clients of the Diot-Siaci Group. More than ever, the Diot-Siaci Group is at the side of companies to help them in their investments on political risks: termination of contract, confiscation, nationalization, single risk...” emphasizes France Arnaud.
