The Buy-Out and Growth Capital unit of Green Arrow Capital SGR relies on a team of 6 dedicated professionals with active involvement of CEO and CIO.
The aim of the team is to invest in small and medium leading Italian companies which are likely to grow in their market and internationally with the support of a specialized financial operator. Italy is indeed a country rich of companies that have a high growth potential and are likely to create value for shareholders by injecting capital and strengthening management.
The investment strategy focuses on the acquisition of majority shares in small and medium leading Italian companies active in a niche market or in a fragmented sectors with high potential of consolidation.
The investment targets are companies with high return on the capital invested that require a limited investment in fixed assets and where the value creation can be achieved by intervening on the organizational and financial structure.
