What we do
Centaurus Capital is a private investment management company with an emphasis on Europe, Asia and the Emerging Markets. We manage assets by selectively investing capital on the basis of a rigorous bottom-up fundamental approach.
As part of our event driven approach, we make investments in equity and credit securities of companies that are undergoing significant corporate events or are experiencing other major changes, as well as "deep value investments" in securities that we believe are undervalued relative to their fundamental or intrinsic value, or which we expect to appreciate, should a particular event take place.
In order to establish an adequate comfort level for our investments, we develop a close and constructive ongoing dialogue with the senior executives of the companies we invest in, and focus on achieving an in-depth fundamental understanding of their businesses.
Centaurus Capital was launched in year 2000 and originated from an investment team working together at BNP Paribas since 1993.
