Company Description

EG is a private equity investment manager committed to socially responsible investing. The firm focuses on sectors including the cooperative economy, environmental issues, fair trade, fair tourism, organic distribution, social integration and proximity services. EG generally targets expansion financing as well as corporate successions, rarely seed or start-up investments. The firm's investments include cooperative businesses for whom classic private equity financing would be unavailable for lack of significant return prospects. EG acquires non-voting shares or convertible bonds with a predefined buy-back schedule.Through the IDES Investissements fund, the firm invests equity capital in companies of the cooperative sector. They have invested in craft cooperatives, organic distribution and general interest cooperatives. The ESFIN Participations partnership and the venture capital fund Fontanot Participations are invested in small to medium-sized companies, particularly businesses involved in ethical and sustainable development activities. They aim at identifying companies where the management team follows socially responsible practices. Investment selection is based on financial, social and environmental criteria. Due diligence on business plans is carried out in-house while the rating agency Arese evaluates SRI criteria, such as relationships with the workforce, suppliers, the environment and society at large.The ESFIN-IDES group is also involved in a variety of investment vehicles related to their chief purpose, including SPOT which focuses on the creation of cooperative structures, and SOFICATRA which facilitates European-based cooperative projects.
