Private Equity & Venture Capital

Investment Strategy

Phylosophy: Fribourg Capital is an investment firm with an industrialist vision. Our strategy is to seek long-term investments in real sectors of the economy that have the potential to generate positive cash flows. Each investment decision is subject to a strict and thorough operational and financial due diligence process. At Fribourg, investing in people extends beyond the boundaries of our firm. This component of our strategic investment philosophy implies the identification of strong management teams that can be of great value within a single project or within projects across the group.

Partnerships

At Fribourg Capital, partnerships are a true success driver. Our strategy is to embark on explicit and implicit involvement in operational and advisory roles alongside our partners. Although all the surgical work is left to the discretion of specialists within the management teams, our professionals have added significant value through their expertise. Specifically, Fribourg Capital group companies benefit from support that includes co-design of growth strategies, identification and facilitation of inter-group synergies, implementing management incentive schemes and attracting debt or equity financing at various business stages. It is one of our goals to align our interests with those of all our investment partners by putting our capital behind their ideas.

Geographic focus

Considered an area of emerging markets, Eastern Europe and CIS presents plenty of opportunities as well as significant challenges. Our committed team of experts have been at their best in identifying leading projects that have generated consistent high returns over the holding period. With a powerful network of regional relationships and regional knowledge, Fribourg Capital is securely positioned within the context of sometimes volatile local markets.
