Listed equity investments

lba’s listed investees are all headquartered in Spain. However, Alba does not have any restriction from a geographical point of view and could, in the case it considered it appropriate, invest in a company established outside Spain.

Main investment criteria:

Unlisted equity investments

Over the last years, Corporación Financiera Alba has channelled its investments in private companies via Artá Capital, an investment firm majority owned by Alba (majority shareholder) and the its management team.

Artá Capital manages two investment funds: Artá Capital Fund I (c. 400 M€; in divestment period) and Artá Capital Fund II (c. 400 M€; in investment period). Both vehicles are focused on minority and majority (only Fund II) stakes of growth capital in mid-size Iberian unlisted companies. Alba has committed 500 M€ in total in both funds, while the rest of the capital has been allocated by third party investors.

Nevertheless, in 2019 Alba invested directly in Verisure, the leading provider of monitored alarm solutions for residential households and small businesses, headquartered in Switzerland. As part of its investment strategy, Alba could continue investing in private companies that would not comply with Artá Capital’s investment criteria due to, for instance, the requirement of a too large investment ticket or the company not being headquartered in Spain or Portugal.
