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.
