A growing market: the market for non-bank senior loans continues to grow amid bank disintermediation. It offers institutional investors an opportunity to diversify their portfolio allocations.

 

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.

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.
