How Abenex supports
SMEs & mid-cap companies:
We invest, either as a minority or majority shareholder, between 10 and 100 million euros in SMEs and mid-cap companies alongside their management teams.
Our approach is pragmatic and closely aligned to companies’ operations, based on an impactful involvement from our investment and operational teams.
Abenex's approach to real estate investing:
By incorporating socially responsible investment criteria, Abenex transforms real estate assets by improving their environmental performance, particularly in value-add projects through the refurbishment and renovation of obsolete buildings.
Abenex offers its investors the most suitable real estate strategy based on their investment and risk-return-liquidity preference.
