Industry

RSJ Industry is a diversified fund of funds that focuses on investment into the manufacturing industry and related services, predominantly in the Czech Republic but also in other Central and East European countries (CEE).

Investment Philosophy

On an EU-wide scale, the CEE region is still quite under-supplied with companies that have business valuations that are attractive from the point of view of private equity funds. Many companies are dealing with succession issues or have reached their maximum business size in terms of their capability of expansion and their founder’s possibilities. These opportunities show high potential for valuation.

  • Actively managed funds investing in PE funds in the Czech Republic.
  • Co-investment in selected investment opportunities together with invested PE funds and other funds in the Czech Republic.
  • Diversification of a portfolio through increased investment through several funds.
  • High yield at the level of the fund, thanks to the co-investments.

Investment Criteria

  • Funds with a strong and experienced management with provable results.

  • Focusing on investment opportunities with high potential after the delivery of additional capital.

  • A long-term investment horizon of 10 years.


  • The possibility of co-investment.

  • A focus on Central and Eastern Europe.

RSJ Industry is a sub-fund of the investment fund RSJ Investments SICAV a.s.
