VENDEAVOUR Private Equity Fund SICAV a.s. 

(hereinafter the "Fund") is a growth investment fund that focuses on investments into mid-sized profitable companies in the Czech Republic and beyond.

We look for stable, established firms that have a solid presence on the market and high added value. We look for companies that are doing something meaningful and whose business is going well. We are gradually building a diversified portfolio of companies in various industries to minimize risks associated with economic cycles. We do not invest in start-ups.

We are currently concentrating primarily on the food and health care industries, where we invest through the Vendeavour Group of companies (www.vendeavour.cz).

The Czech market is currently seeing a wave of generational succession among owners of businesses founded in the 1990s. Many business owners who built their companies from the ground up are ready to ease up after 20 or 30 years of running a business. However, they often lack a suitable successor.

We help such business owners by taking over their companies and continuing to operate and developing them long-term. In companies that we take over, we work closely with the original owners to maintain continuity in company operations. We also always enable the original owners to retain a minority stake in the company and give them the related option of playing a substantial role in the management and future growth of the company. We also offer them the option of investing the proceeds from the company sale back into our Fund.

VENDEAVOUR Private Equity Fund SICAV a.s. is a fund of qualified investors. It is intended solely for qualified investors with sufficient investment knowledge and experience and an adequate financial position. The minimum investment into the Fund is CZK 1 million.


Why invest in the Fund?

  • Investment into real assets - functioning companies, primarily in the Czech Republic
  • Good timing and a sufficient number of attractive opportunities
  • Expected above-standard return of 6-10 % p.a. with a guaranteed minimum return of 6% p.a. (MIN) for priority investment shares, even if the Fund incurs a lower profit or loss. The guarantee occurs through redistribution of the fund capital from holders of premium, management and performance investment shares to holders of priority and preference investment shares, up to the amount of the fund capital.
