Abénex Capital: Best Mid-Market Direct Investments Team France 2016


Abénex Capital is a household name for the financially initiated in France – and for good reason. As a private company managing mid-market capital investments worth over €450 million, Abénex Capital continues to show resilience during the economy’s recent lacklustre performance.

Fully approved by the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF), France’s capital markets regulator, Abénex Capital erected an independent structure proving support for unlisted companies. With five main sectors of investment – retail & consumer goods, industries & construction, business services, health, and technology – the company employs an extensive team of talented and widely experienced financial associates to encourage growth wherever they invest.

Abénex Capital is a testament to good business and smart investment principles. Since 2000, the team has made 110 acquisitions, investing €900 million in long-term growth and optimisation projects, as well as management teams. This includes mid-market business coaching through the acquisition of both minority and majority stakes – investing €10 million in companies valued between €30-500 million. It takes more than a sole financial investment to grow an SME into a global entity: it takes the veteran knowhow of internationally experienced stakeholders.

Abénex Capital is currently the number one company in France in aiding global growth to mid-market companies – and that is largely due to the team of financial gurus behind the company’s direct investments. The team boasts extensive experience in the financial management of SME’s, as well as working with the global elite such as IBM, Goldman Sachs, The Deloitte Group, and Orange.

With an impressive portfolio of acquisitions, Abénex Capital has managed to obtain stellar results even in adverse market conditions, and is set to maintain its performance with two additional acquisitions already scheduled for 2016.

With its longevity in the market, a renowned management team, and long-term focus, the CFI.co judging panel finds the Abénex Capital team peerless in France and beyond and a worthy winner of the 2016 Best Mid-Market Direct Investments Team Award.
