Kartesia opens Munich Office
Kartesia, is pleased to announce the opening of a new office in Munich, Germany.
Kartesia’s new German headquarters will cater specifically to entrepreneurial opportunities in DACH, with financial solutions ranging from senior debt financing to structured equity investments. Kartesia is strongly committed to further expand its position in the region; reflecting its proven track record, offices in Frankfurt, and now Munich, and four additions to the local team this year.
Kartesia aims to increasingly target tailor-made financing and co-investing solutions to entrepreneurs, management teams and private investor groups based in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Giuseppe Mirante was recently hired to set up the Munich office and further develop Kartesia’s credit opportunities business. He will be joined locally by Thomas Pöhler, who is already heading Kartesia’s senior lending efforts in the region.
According to Laurent Bouvier, Managing Partner of Kartesia; “Munich is a very important investor hub for the German-speaking region and beyond, with significant entrepreneurial investing activity by smaller equity funds, family offices and management teams focused on the SME segment. It is therefore a fertile ground for Kartesia to create financial partnerships with alternative equity sponsors in the lower mid-market.”
Munich is Kartesia’s seventh office and takes headcount at the pan-European credit fund to 40. Kartesia targets investment in SMEs with EBITDA between EUR 3 and 30 million and can provide a wide range of financing options with ticket sizes ranging from EUR 10 to 80 million.
