Carta Capital was established in 2003 to provide mezzanine and junior capital to privately owned businesses throughout Europe. We focus on investing in small to medium sized businesses, principally in transactions, such as, management buyouts, management buyins, corporate acquisitions, expansion capital or recapitalisations. Generally, we provide mezzanine to buyouts sponsored by leading private equity firms, however, we also provide mezzanine independently to businesses where appropriate.

Carta Capital is an independent firm which is owned and managed by its Partners who have been part of the business since inception. We have a proven track record of investing in mezzanine in lower to mid market businesses with an aggregate of circa sixty years experience in the European leveraged sector. Our source of capital is via our investment funds which are backed by a number of institutional investors.

Carta Capital has earned a reputation amongst private equity houses and other financial institutions as reliable and responsive decision-makers. Our short lines of communication and efficient decision making processes allow us to respond quickly to complex financing proposals and to deliver tailored solutions.
