Direct Investments

As a focal point for entrepreneurs and business people looking to raise capital in our region, SP Advisors has access to a large amount of the deal flow in the region. Once we identify unique opportunities and attractive returns that are often too small for professional investors, our parent holding company, SP Capital Management, often considers making a direct investment—either alone or in partnership with our clients. Our deal history includes Moreca (acquisition of a majority stake), Beaufort Securities (acquisition of a minority stake), Salateira, Georgian Fruit Company, and more, including through majority and minority equity stakes, convertible loan facilities, and pure debt.
