Wide range of investment instruments
We are one of the largest and longest standing equity investors in the countries where we work, looking to invest up to  €1 billion annually through straight equity, mezzanine products, preference shares and other instruments

Private and listed investments
In addition to private equity, we also invest in public equities to promote the development of capital markets in our regions by participating in pre-IPO financing, IPOs, capital increases and other public transactions

Variety of deal types
We have a wide mandate that allows us to invest not just in growth capital opportunities but also in investments with longer investment horizons, privatisations and others
