Implementing a strategy based on diverse, high-quality services as well as a people-centred organisation is the choice that some companies are making to ensure growth and success. An interview with Grégory Centurione, CEO and Founder of Value Partners.

Value Partners was founded in 2012 with the aim of providing high-quality services to businesses and alternative funds. This was the ambition of entrepreneur Grégory Centurione, CEO and Founder of Value Partners. Before setting up the company nine years ago, he initially spent fifteen years working for international advisory firms in Belgium, the Czech Republic and Luxembourg.

It’s been a real success story in an extremely competitive market

The CEO’s ambition was to develop a “one-stop shop” strategy, offering a complete service in both regulated and unregulated markets to institutional clients, consisting mainly of private equity and real estate (PERE) alternative funds. Seven departments have been created over the last nine years: PERE Accounting, Consolidation, Tax, VAT, Corporate Services, AML/KYC & Reporting Services and Fund Administration via VPsf, the regulated entity within the Value Partners group. The number of employees has increased from 3 to 115 in less than a decade. This dynamic approach is directly reflected in the expansion of the business, which ends its 2021 financial year with 24% growth, experiencing average annual growth of 34% over the 2013-2021 period.

Among the services offered, accounting and consolidation assistance helps alternative funds and companies to meet their annual accounting and financial statement obligations, in accordance with both local and international standards (IFRS). The Tax and VAT departments provide expertise in tax advice, periodic tax return preparation and compliance obligations (DAC 6). The Corporate Services department offers accounting solutions for medium-sized companies and funds, legal secretarial support and company incorporation and liquidation assistance. Luxembourg funds are administered through VPsf, a subsidiary regulated by the CSSF (Luxembourg regulator).

Over the years, we have honed our range of services, providing tailor-made solutions to over 2,000 entities to date.

 In response to new financial security challenges resulting from regulatory changes, the company created the AML & KYC Services department in 2021 to complete its team. “From its inception in 2012, Value Partners has placed great emphasis on professional, rigorous risk management and AML/KYC obligations. The internal expertise acquired during those early years led us to create the KYC/AML & Reporting Services department so that we could offer this kind of regulatory service to our clients. This development just serves to strengthen our ‘one-stop shop’ strategy.

Another major development was the creation of the VP Training Center in 2019, which provides around 120 internal training courses for our employees each year. The quality of our services is fundamental.” 

Unique client positioning and employee satisfaction

Value Partners is uniquely positioned as an independent company with a strong corporate culture that is fundamentally people oriented. The CEO believes that employees are central to a policy that promotes quality excellence. “Technical skills and human values are now central to my beliefs. One of my priorities has been to implement an HR policy based on our values of respect, cooperation, solidarity, professionalism and responsibility.” This approach has resulted in very low staff turnover and earned the company a Best Workplaces Luxembourg award by the Great Place to Work institute in 2022.

This HR policy, which was a major factor in the company’s success, can be found in our Human Capital & Employer Branding Dossier.
