We manage investments not a private equity fund*

  • We work on project basis – once we identify a good investment opportunity, we invest funds required for the growth and, if appropriate, attract co-investors (high net-wealth private individuals, institutional or strategic investors) on investments above EUR 3million.
  • We trust our partners, involved in the management of business, in which we are investing. We never go into business without having a partner that understands the business.
  • We add value through passionate involvement in a company's strategic decision making and operating philosophy. We do not seek to be significantly involved into a management of business but are prepared to help as needs emerge to restore financial health of the business and growth of its capitalization.

Traditional PE funds raise money for potential investments long before investments are made. As a result, substantial un-invested funds are idle and bring low returns initially.
