Arcadia SGR, independent and management-controlled, makes investments in small and medium-sized Italian companies.
In 2009 Arcadia obtained authorisation from the Bank of Italy to operate as a fund management company and has been included in the Special Register of Management Companies at position n. 121.
In 2012, Arcadia completed the closing of “Arcadia Small Cap Fund”, a closed-end fund that includes such investors as the European Commission, through funds managed by the European Investment Fund.
In 2017 Arcadia has started the operations of Arcadia Small Cap II, with the renovated support of the European Investment Fund.
Arcadia’s approach in the management of its investment portfolio mirrors that of a holding company with direct control over its various subsidiaries. Arcadia’s management team and Business Partners maintain a constructive and active presence within the companies in which Arcadia is invested.
Arcadia’s Financial Controller acts as a supervisor of the portfolio companies’ CFOs, contributing to the improvement of their control and reporting systems.
Arcadia’s goal is to create value in the invested companies by focusing on business strategy, improving performance and strengthening the management team. This is achieved through the introduction/improvement of business intelligence tools.
