Track record in cross border operations

A little background

The Firm

The competence in international operations is established in 2005 with Pantheon, initially specialized in cross-border transactions between Italy and India, a country where Fante gained a deep knowledge and experience. With the subsequent entry into the Fante group in 2009, the company progressively develops its operations throughout the world. Through its dense network of relationships and partnerships, Fante Cross Border offers consultancy on an international scale for all industrial and service sectors

The distinctive success factor of Fante Cross Border lies in the wide network of resources, skills and contacts: over 500 in 122 countries worldwide. The strong know-how in international operations allows the team to guide and support its clients in the challenges posed by globalization, through concrete and targeted solutions. At the same time, it offers a wide range of consultancy services to foreign operators who intend to develop a business in our country

Compared to the other players on the market, Fante Cross Border relies on a proprietary network of relationships with banks, investors, opinion leaders and senior advisors all over the world, without joining any multi-country association or international network. This guarantees solidity and reliability in all its operations and a concrete success-oriented approach
