Certior Capital is a pioneer in European private markets. We have been investing in European private equity and private credit since 1995 and have executed over 200 individual transactions. We are highly committed to responsible business practices and good corporate governance.
Since we began investing almost three decades ago European private markets have increased enormously in size and sophistication. We strongly believe in the asset class but think that average returns are no longer good enough. We seek to outperform through targeting asymmetric return opportunities across the capital structure. While our investment experience covers most sectors across all European geographies, we concentrate our resources on those areas offering particular value.
We have adopted a three-pronged approach to driving outperformance that sets us apart from other investment managers. We focus on:
The senior investment staff at Certior Capital each average more than 20 years of investment experience. As a result of our deep networks we maintain a strong pipeline of investment opportunities and typically transact on 3-5 primaries or secondaries and 10-12 co-investments annually.
Alongside our own dedicated funds, Certior Capital also provides broader tailored mandates and advisory services which may include allocations to all parts of the European private equity and private credit universe including mid and large cap buyouts and direct lending, special situations and venture capital. In total, our funds and mandates under management and our advisory mandates amount to around EUR 1bn
