MIDDLE MARKET FOCUS

Investment scope

Small and Mid-Market Focus

The team has a strong reputation in identifying mispriced and under-the-radar opportunities with solid downside protection, which it sources within the European small and middle-market companies via three channels:

Secondary markets

Our ability to consistently deliver rapid and tailor made transactions to a variety of sellers makes us a partner of choice. We have a long track record in buying and holding to maturity single loan or portfolios made-up of senior, second lien or mezzanine debt, held against middle-market European LBOs or CDO/CLO liabilities. As per June 2017, we had executed over 230 trades across Europe.

Primary markets

Kartesia has the experience, resources and flexibility essential to provide complex financing solutions quickly (from senior debt to quasi-equity or hybrid debt). Our proven track-record and solid reputation complement each other to support our investments.

Special situations

Our versatility in combining rapid access to debt capital and creative solutions in partnership with existing stakeholders (private equity sponsors, management teams, banks and/or mezzanine lenders), enable us to add value in time-sensitive or challenging situations.
