Who we are

Created in 2004, CAPZA is an established European private investment platform.

With €8.2 billion of assets, CAPZA puts its experience and passion for investing in small & mid cap companies at the service of investors in Europe and around the world.

 

CAPZA offers a platform of 6 complementary areas of expertise: Private Debt, Artemid Senior Loans1, Flex Equity, Flex Equity Mid-Market, Transition2 and Growth Tech.

 

CAPZA offers financing solutions to small & mid cap companies at every stage of their development. Its unique platform allows CAPZA to support companies over the long term by providing them with flexible financing solutions (majority capital, minority capital, subordinated debt, senior debt, etc.).

 

CAPZA is a generalist but has built up strong expertise in supporting companies in the health, technology and BtoB services sectors.

 

“Since the company was created, we have built up a community of entrepreneurs who share our values and our vision of investing. Based on our passion for their business and our ability to challenge ourselves, we have designed CAPZA as a flexible investment platform that adapts to their needs. This community of entrepreneurs is the driving force behind the performance we deliver to our investors. It energizes us and enables us to identify opportunities. The connections we create and the long-term relationships we forge are at the heart of our value creation capability.” Christophe Karvelis-Senn, Executive Chairman and Founder
