NEW YORK, NY and PARIS--(Marketwire - June 17, 2010) -  The Triana Group Inc., which partners with European companies to facilitate their entry and growth in the U.S., and Meeschaert Capital Markets, Inc., the North American arm of France's first private banking company, today announced a partnership to optimize their clients' U.S. presence.

"Our work puts us in close contact with the most dynamic and innovative companies in technology, life sciences and clean tech," said Dr. Jabril Bensedrine, Managing Director of the Triana Group. "This partnership enables Triana to accelerate our current and future portfolio companies' development and allows Meeschaert Capital Markets to provide a range of attractive investment opportunities."

"This unique partnership, which combines Meeschaert's investment experience in growth companies with Triana's technical and managerial expertise and visionary model for U.S. expansion, enables us to offer promising European companies a complete and customized solution for their development in the U.S.," added Frédéric Champavère, Managing Director for Europe for the Triana Group.

The companies will become preferred partners seeking to develop mutually beneficial projects.
