Experienced team: the teams at Artemid and its parent companies bring together experts who have been dedicated for many years to financing or investing in French ISEs. They know lots of medium-sized companies in France, having supported them through their various stages of development.

 

Capacity to generate unique proprietary dealflow and proven experience as arranger: over 50% of deals carried out by the funds in the Artemid range are proprietary1. In addition, Artemid has arranged 2/3 of the deals. This unique dealflow has been achieved thanks to long-standing relationships with management teams and shareholders. Generating proprietary dealflow and being an arranger is key when it comes to negotiating attractive financial and legal terms.

 

A meticulous investment process and pro-active portfolio monitoring: the track record of funds in the Artemid range, which have been selected carefully, deliver regular returns and a low annualized loss rate. Portfolios are monitored all the more closely thanks to regular dialogue with management teams.

 

ESG is a key element in the investment process. A personalized follow-up of the companies is ensured throughout the financing process thanks to an ESG-specialized firm supporting the Artemid team.
