People

We employ approximately 20 investment professionals, led by 8 partners, including individuals from all the key nationalities in the region. Between them they incorporate a wide range of professional and commercial backgrounds, as well as extensive private equity experience in one or more of the countries within Central & Eastern Europe.

A particular feature of the ABRIS team is its inclusion of individuals having direct operating experience in a variety of different industries. We believe this allows us to interact and relate more constructively with the management and entrepreneurs we partner with.

With the growing maturity of CEE’s middle market, local businesses are increasingly looking to establish a regional presence by expanding their operations across borders. Therefore we believe we need to be both region-wide in our approach to identifying new investment opportunities and, just as importantly, be able to offer our portfolio companies cross-border support and practical help.

Beyond operating in our own countries of residence, our team is expected to work across the region so that their sector-specific expertise is available wherever it’s needed. This way our teams can more effectively evaluate cross-border opportunities, and so clarify growth opportunities. This also accelerates our internal investment review processes.

Such extensive cross-border capability is vital to our evaluation methodology and, in turn, to our ability to develop the full potential of our portfolio businesses.

Locations

Our two investment offices are located in Warsaw and Bucharest. This structure provides us with full regional coverage from an investment perspective and enables us efficiently to support the growth and development of our portfolio companies.
