Being a long-standing private debt manager and the chosen partner of top tier European private equity sponsors for mid-market financing, CAPZA has demonstrated over the past 15 years a unique capacity to generate high performing proprietary investments.
A cycle tested investment team and strategy: CAPZA has been operating in the private debt market since 2004. We have built a track record of over 15 years with 86 transactions and manage €1.8 billion1 of private debt assets.
The team is structured around 7 senior investment professionals with 24 years of experience on average.1
A unique sourcing capability built over 15 years: over 65% of the deals generated by the team have been proprietary/repeat transactions3, leveraging on existing private equity and private debt portfolios and long-standing relationships with management teams and sponsors. Proprietary dealflow is key when it comes to negotiating attractive financial and legal terms.
Proven ramp-up capabilities: an abundant proprietary dealflow has enabled CAPZA to arrange €1.1bn of financing in less than two years2 while remaining very selective thanks to a meticulous investment process.
A robust track record: the team benefits from a strong track record with regular returns and a low annualized loss rate thanks to a cycle tested portfolio construction.
