Launched in 2013, Kartesia is an LBO debt fund headquartered in Luxembourg with offices in Brussels and London.
Kartesia intends to capitalize on the structural disintermediation that the European banking sector is currently experiencing by investing in the primary and secondary credit markets.
Kartesia's philosophy is to take a generalist view and deliver a diversified portfolio across various sectors. The team concentrates on companies with international exposure, industry-leading market positions, strong brands or other unique and differentiating factors. Kartesia can also invest in middle-market companies that are at a turning point in their development, including those in financial distress or in need of a deep restructuring of their capital structure.
The fund can invest €10-50 million per transaction; mostly in credit financing solutions targeting LBO debt; secondary as well as primary for small and midcap companies.
