Who we are
Our story starts at the beginning of the last century, when the great-grandfather of Fabien Plane, Albert Rancier, founded the Cabinet Plane in 1924. At the time the Cabinet Plane’s main business was insuring their clients against daily risks.
Alberts son-in-law Louis Plane joined him in 1946. Louis focussed on dealing with questions like «what to do with my savings?» and, already, «how to get a loan?». When Albert left in 1965, Louis took charge until 1981. He was joined in 1969 by his son Bernard Plane, who further developed the company and its activities.ln 1999 Bernard’s son Fabien would join him to progressively learn the know-how from three past generations. Fabien is in charge of the company since 2009 and was joined by his wife Angela in 2016.
Angela is originally from Germany and has lived in several different countries before she put down roots in the beautiful South of France. Speaking four languages and having a Master in Business Administration, she quickly decided to join Fabien’s company to focus on nonresident customers who wish to buy a property with a mortgage in France.
