Aptimus Capital Partners is a dynamic, agile, multi-strategy investment manager concentrated on niche and less explored areas of European private markets. We have a substantial presence in London and Madrid.
With a focus on providing direct financing solutions across the ‘unsponsored’ middle market, we engage with entrepreneurs, management teams and asset owners. This allows us to forge strong relationships, gain unique insights on value drivers and to be purposeful in creating a positive impact in the real economy.
Our heritage is in Direct Lending solutions to the Spanish middle market, an ecosystem which remains rich in opportunities. As we have grown, we have expanded into other geographies and adjacent strategies.
The ethos of our business is to be long-term in our approach and to operate with integrity and transparency.
We believe in the value of collaborative relationships. By creating deep partnerships with investors, stakeholders and portfolio companies we aim to deliver strong outcomes for all.
Our team culture is rewarding, dynamic, entrepreneurial, and one which encourages contrarian thinking.
Across the scope of our investment activities, we aim to embed Impact considerations as well as ESG at every stage of the investment process.
Our approach to responsible investing cascades through our investment process and is a core value within our business.
We align ourselves with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (“UN SDGs”) framework and aim to positively weight businesses within these sectors. By providing long-term capital solutions to middle market businesses, we help drive economic prosperity and job creation.
Our Private Credit Impact Strategy is designed to provide financing solutions to businesses whose core activity has material positive social or environmental impact.
We seek to identify and partner with businesses aligned to specific SDGs. Through setting impact targets, and clearly measuring outcomes, we aim to deliver a transparent proposition without compromising risk and return considerations.
We seek out differentiated value by focusing on niche, specialist markets and geographies where private capital solutions are limited.
This may involve opportunities which require intensive origination, flexible solutions and a level of additional complexity.
We have developed broad networks, strategic partnerships and long-term relations with market participants. This allows direct access to opportunities and enables a consistent and robust origination pipeline.
Our approach to identifying attractive target segments of the European private market is informed by our view of secular trends, macroeconomic considerations, and capital formation dynamics.
However, our investment process is very much focused on ‘bottom up’ analysis and managing idiosyncratic risk.
Our robust investment process is founded on deep due diligence and direct access to owners and management teams. This allows us to structure flexible capital solutions, while targeting superior risk adjusted returns for investors.
We look for market leaders with proven track records, competitive business models, strong growth prospects and resilient cash flows with excellent management teams and strong governance.
We position ourselves as long-term, value add partners who can help businesses to grow. This also enables us to understand, monitor and manage the performance of our investments in real time.
