- INVESTMENT CASE -
What is the purpose of the transformation?
The surge in the on-line luxury goods market is impacting brands that have invested significantly in digital transformation, as well as the major multi-brand companies. Based on its size, innovative business model and extensive catalogue, Farfetch is already an undeniable player in this market, which is consolidating around a small number of multi-brand players, including Farfetch, that are privileged brand partners. With further international development, particularly in China, its second largest market, Japan and the other Asia-Pacific zone countries, the company’s growth potential is considerable.
How will Eurazeo accompany Farfetch in this transformation?
Eurazeo will share its knowledge of the luxury, fashion, brand and digital sectors. We will support Farfetch with its brand alignments, so that its value proposition perfectly matches their needs. The presence of Eurazeo in China, Brazil and the United States will also aid Farfetch in its international development.
