Investment Strategy

Praesidian Capital Europe has been providing flexible capital to middle market businesses since its inception in 2013. In 2020, Praesidian Capital Europe officially launched its control equity platform with a focus on acquiring middle market businesses with strong management teams and attractive growth prospects. Through a combination of personal capital and long-standing relationships with investors, Praesidian Capital Europe is diligently building out a portfolio of control equity deals within the lower middle market.


Growth & Acquisition Financings

Investing capital to support continued growth and strategic initiatives, which may include rolling out new sites, extending product lines, and acquiring complementary businesses or expanding geographic coverage.

Management & Sponsored Buyouts

Management Buyouts

Partnering with experienced management teams to capitalise on management or leveraged buyout investment opportunities.

Recapitalizations & Refinance

Recapitalisations & Refinancing

Enabling owners, investors, and entrepreneurs, to realize proceeds without the need for a full sale of a business. This may facilitate shareholder liquidity or succession and estate planning.

Praesidian Capital Europe has long-standing relationships with proven operators, and unlike many other private equity investors, we also look to support owners and current management teams that are willing to roll equity into the deal and remain active in the business.
