Investment
approach

We are deliberately different and source differentiated dealflow

Certior Capital invests opportunistically across Europe to achieve the best returns for its clients. To outperform we have a deliberately different investment philosophy.

We are not an allocator. We like keeping things small and focus on the potential for additional returns rather than simple asset gathering.

We focus on undercapitalised and overlooked sectors of the market which can offer real value. Typically, this can mean partnering with emerging managers on smaller deals, concept funds or with deal-by-deal teams where capital is scare and return potential is high.

We are often the first investor providing seed capital to a new fund and are in a strong position to demand preferential terms as a result.

We aim to be the preferred co-investor to our investment partners and will typically expect a 1.1 allocation of co-investment to fund capital.

We are incentivised by carry not management fees and expect our investment partners to be similarly aligned.

Responsible investing is important to us and we work hard to promote the highest environmental, social and governance standards across our investment activities.
