Italglobal Partners (“IGP”) is an investment advisor operating as financial and strategic partner to its investee companies with the aim of turning them into global leaders. IGP’s investments focus on consolidated Italian SMEs exhibiting good profitability, products and technologies that are exportable worldwide, and a potential for international growth that still hasn’t been fully expressed.
Investments are directed mainly towards those industrial sectors which present the best opportunities for international development (mechanical engineering, luxury goods, food and biomedical industries). Targeted companies are identified through their position on the market and their expansion potential: they are outstanding examples of “Made in Italy” which hold a strong appeal for foreign markets. Once selected, companies are coached and supported actively by IGP’s management in their international growth.
THE OPERATIONAL FORMAT
IGP specialises in high yield investments – made through “Club Deals” – which differ from the more onerous underwriting of funds by their autonomous, extremely flexible and convenient nature.
WHY CHOOSE IGP
The operational model of IGP is based on two distinctive strategic features:
- Direct and privileged access to the best investment opportunities thanks to IGP’s wide network of on-field relations
- Ability to actively support, hands-on, the investee companies in their international development by leveraging on the attested experience and foreign relations network of the management team.
HIGHLY EXPERIENCED MANAGEMENT TEAM
The IGP Management Team combines an excellent track record in Private Equity, with extensive experience in supporting Italian firms in their internationalisation and with a profound knowledge of foreign markets – in particular, of the Asian ones.
The company, founded in 2012 by Ruggero Jenna and Francesco Sala, has completed so far five investments and is currently analysing several investment reports so as to be able to uphold the highest standards of deal flow and to generate a substantial return on investments for the Investors’ Club.
THE INVESTORS’ CLUB
The business is backed by a group of important private investors who – in a mechanism of “structured club deal” – participate in the operations selected by IGP, but without any repeated investment agreement.
