The investor Perusa
Perusa is an international Private Equity Firm. It consists of Guernsey-based Perusa Management Limited, an Alternative Investment Fund Manager (AIFM) regulated by the local Financial Services Authority, Munich-based Perusa GmbH, and Stockholm-based Perusa AB, advising the AIFM on acquiring, developing and selling the portfolios of Perusa Funds.
Perusa invests in mid-sized companies and corporate carve-outs in the German speaking, the Netherlands and Nordic countries. In addition to growing and profitable companies, Perusa does not shy away from investments in companies in a state of change. Possible investment situations include succession issues, corporate carve-outs or secondaries of growing companies with strong market position and value creation potential. Perusa believes in the success of a portfolio focusing on investments in long term development oriented portfolio companies, which is underlined by the long 14 years term of the Perusa Funds.
More than capital
Perusa invests more than just money and seeks to support the development of the portfolio companies together with the management team through a strong operational approach. This encompasses the implementation of best-in-class value creation measures on both top- and bottomline to accelerate growth and professionalize internal processes of the portfolio companies. A central cornerstone is on digitalisation, the development of quantititive tools for improved decision-making as well as on external growth via strategic acquisitions (Buy & Build).
Perusa therefore regards a strong management team as instrumental for the success of a company and has the capabilities and experience to act as their sparring partner and support them suitably.
History of Perusa
Perusa GmbH was founded in 2007 as a consulting firm in Munich. The senior investment team of Perusa GmbH consists of highly experienced investors and entrepreneurs with a combined investment experience of more than 100 years.
The name Perusa is rooted in the office location which is Perusa passage in Munich – which in turn is named after one of the oldest aristocratic and entrepreneurial families in Savoy, the Bertrand de la Pérouse family. In Munich this family was simply called Perusa later on.
Perusa´s head office is situated close to the former family residence in Perusa passage (across from Fünf Höfe).
The current fund, Perusa Partners II L.P., has EUR 207 million equity capital for investments (according to key criteria). Perusa Funds are sponsored by a small group of institutional investors including top tier insurance companies, banks and pension funds from the Nordic countries, the US, the Netherlands and Australia.
