The Firm

Augens Capital is a private equity investment firm founded in 2014 by experienced professionals with significant backgrounds in leading global financial institutions (Vestar Capital Partners, Goldman Sachs, Société Générale, Deutsche Bank).

Thanks to the experience developed by Augens’s founding partners in leading private equity and investment banking firms, we apply the international best practice of private equity investments to the Italian mid-market. Our team has years of experience in investing, and the partners of the firm have been working together for many years, taking on different roles as investors, advisors and managers.

Augens Capital’s investment strategy is based on majority management buyout and growth equity investments in the Italian mid-market. We invest in high-quality companies that need financial and strategic support to face succession issues, to tackle export markets and to lead sector consolidation processes. Our primary focus is on the healthcare, consumer and business services sectors.

We bring together leading international institutional capital
and high-quality Italian middle market companies

Augens Capital brings together leading international institutional capital and high-quality Italian mid-market companies. This funding strategy allows us to be more flexible in the way we support companies, selecting the best investor for each specific situation, depending on the maturity of the target company, the industry where it operates and the timeframe of the investment. We have an extensive network of consolidated relationships with several institutional investors, including some of the leading asset managers and family offices worldwide.
