GB & Partners currently runs four private equity and venture capital investment funds at an aggregate initial capital of some 70 bn HUF (~200 mn EUR).

We have two venture capital investment funds launched under the aegis of EU’s JEREMIE programme, while our other two private equity investment funds are backed by internationally active institutional and private investors. The investment period for the two JEREMIE funds was closed in 2016, no further investments can be made since then, key focus is now on business development and exits.

Not only our investment philosophy but our funds’ transaction limits and goals tend to match international trends. Exim Cross-border PE Fund and GBP I PE Fund explicitly targets projects with foreign expansion as a primary strategic vision. Exim Fund however invests mainly into Hungarian companies wishing to enter or expand in foreign markets, while GBP I Fund may invest practically anywhere in the world.
