The Parmenion Group (Parmenion Soparfi S.A. and the group companies) and the family offices in Europe and the Middle East that we work with are also interested in selected private equity, venture capital or other direct investment types in which we would acquire a minority stake, either directly or indirectly (through one of the funds that we are associated with). We are not interested in loans or other interest-bearing pure fixed income transactions.
Our geographical focus is global, although we do prefer deals in
- countries/regions that we are already present in, but where the investment will further strengthen our position (e.g. Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland, UAE) or
- countries/regions where we do not have a presence yet, but where the investment will provide us with a strong foothold in that new market. Although we do not exclude any country or region upfront, we especially welcome proposals from the European Union, MENA, Africa, Emerging Asia and the CIS Countries.
Our thematic focus is on The New Finance, The Changing World and Sustainability. For more information about these themes, see also our introductory page.
As far as our industry focus is concerned, we are generalists although we believe that the best added value and win-wins are created in the following sectors:
- Financial Services / Investment Management
- Financial Technology (FinTech)
- Fashion and Luxury
- Retail / New Media
Investments in other sectors that would encompass at least two of our three thematic themes are of interest as well.
We have a preference for investments ranging in size from USD 250,000 to USD 10,000,000.
