Captima Strategic

Captima Strategic Alliances

Our strategic alliances leverage the resources and specialised offerings of key funding relationships to deliver creative capital solutions.

Captima, through its joint venture with a European Fund, continues to build a pipeline of real estate and asset-based financing transactions.

The Fund having largely committed its first private equity fund (closed in Oct 2014), has now closed a second fully discretionary fund at its hard cap. The Fund now sits on more than £600 million of dry-powder, to be deployed over the next 18 to 24 months.
The focus remains the same; small to mid-cap asset-backed opportunities throughout Europe where flexible capital can be provided, characterised in two ways:

  • Opportunistic event-driven financing: Creating value for borrowers through highly tailored asset-secured loans, which enable capital restructuring and / or project execution.
  • Transitional, programmatic facilities: Leveraging performing asset-related operating businesses, with flexible ‘on-call’ capital to drive portfolio expansion and EBITDA growth.

Investment strategy:

  • Asset-backed investments including real estate-related, other ‘real assets’ and financial assets[/list]
  • Primary focus on the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, Scandinavia, Austria, Benelux and Switzerland
  • Secondary focus on Spain, Portugal, Central and Eastern Europe (excluding Russia)
