Approach

Mid Europa has a pan-regional approach, targeting market leading firms, principally in domestic-focused growth industries, in the region's mid-market. Post-acquisition, we have a hands-on and operationally-focused investment approach to drive value.  Furthermore, we place a strong emphasis on environmental, social and governance issues across the investment process.

Geography

We are focused on the growth markets of Central and South Eastern Europe, currently the fastest growing economies in Europe. We focus primarily on the countries of Central Europe, whilst seeking further growth in Turkey, the Baltic States and the countries of former Yugoslavia. Additionally, we will opportunistically consider certain bordering countries.
