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.

The investment of the Fund aims to upgrade and empower domestic SMEs to become internationally scalable suppliers by significantly improving and strengthening their competitiveness. The management support based on cooperative efforts provided by the Fund Manager and its well-established network of professionals assist the SMEs in the implemention of necessary technological developments and innovations and in acquiring the essential know-how of successfully operating in international markets. The Classical Industries PE (KIM) offers capital injections to Hungarian companies and their partners operating in traditional or classical industries. The new funding combined with the international management approach represented by GB & Partners companies can now strive for a higher, qualified supplier status. The integration of complementary companies that receive capital into the value chain is also one of the long-term objectives of the Fund.
