What We Do & How We Got Here
SARMIS Capital was established in 2019 as an independent private equity fund manager, investing in Romania and neighbouring countries, currently among the fastest-growing economies in Europe. The first fund has over €150m of available capital to invest and is backed by some of the most prestigious counter-parties around the world, including endowments, development financial institutions, family offices and high net worth individuals.
We have a diverse, complementary skillset for investing. The founding partners are all from the target region and have 75 years of collective deal-related experience, with 30 years as direct investors and 55 years on-the-ground presence. During this time, we have established an unrivalled reputation among entrepreneurs, due to our collaborative, hands-on approach.
Since 2007, the team members have been active investors in the region. We have invested €230m in 19 transactions in Romania alone and raised over €250m from local banks for the benefit of our portfolio companies (used either for capital structure optimisation or for acquisitions). Furthermore, we have committed over €5bn internationally and advised in various capacities on 50+ closed deals in excess of €25bn.
The founding partners have a proven track record of working closely together on investments, turnarounds and consolidations. We believe our skills and experience are best applied in Romania, our native country, as well as in neighbouring markets, where we have prior know-how and established professional networks.
