Investment Philosophy

Acmero Funds pursue investment opportunities aiming to support growing companies in Russia and Europe. The major criterion in selecting investment opportunities would be a strong and credible potential of the target company to become its sector leader in 3-5 years either via rapid organic growth or as a result of successful M&A deals.

Particular emphasis is made on the management team of target companies capable of demonstrating strong commitment to execute their business plan and be pro-active in generating new ideas to improve and scale their existing business.

Acmero Funds play an active role in the development of their portfolio companies and are perceived by the potential investee companies as a strategic financial partner. Acmero Funds welcome co-investment and follow-on opportunities.

Acmero Funds seek to achieve economic and organizational synergies between their portfolio companies.
