Currently, GB & Partners runs five private equity and venture capital investment funds at an aggregate initial capital of some 80 bn HUF (~300 M EUR).

Our two venture capital investment funds had launched under the aegis of the EU’s JEREMIE programme, while our other three private equity investment funds are backed by internationally active institutional and private investors. The investment periods for the two JEREMIE funds were closed in 2016 without any further investments. The key focus is on business development and exits ever since.

Not only our investment philosophy but our funds’ transaction limits and goals too are  adjusted to international trends. The Exim Cross-border PE Fund, the KIM PE Fund and the GBP I PE Fund explicitly target projects with foreign expansion as a primary strategic focus. Exim Fund’s investments are Hungarian companies planning to enter or expand in foreign markets while GBP I Fund’s spectrum of possible investments extend national markets.

EXIM Exportösztönző Magántőkealap / EXIM Cross-border PE Fund

Launch year: 2016
Initial capital: 56 bn HUF
Ticket size:
200-8.500 mn HUF

This Fund reached its current status through the merger with EXIM Growth PE Fund in 2019, its investment period ends in 2024 while the Fund expires in 2029. Average targeted ticket size is between 5-10 mn EUR but can be as high some 23.5 mn EUR. The Fund invests primarily into Hungarian projects or already existing ventures that are on the verge of entering foreign markets or wish to expand their presence abroad and are committed to utilising the fresh funds and our operative support to target a soaring international growth. The Fund can close investments with a ticket size previously offered only by foreign investors, which allows its portfolio companies to not only boost their services and products exporting capabilities but also to become foreign investors themselves.
