Svarog Capital Advisors is one of the leading private equity firms in Russia and CIS with over $500m of capital under management. The firm was established as a private equity arm of the Renova Group under the Renova Capital name in October 2003. As a result of a management buy-out in 2007, Renova Capital was renamed Svarog Capital Advisors. Since 2004, our funds have invested in 13 companies with an aggregate transaction value of over $460 m.
The firm’s investment approach is to provide equity financing to industry-leading companies with exceptional prospects and the ability to generate superior returns. Our core investment strategy is fostering company growth through entering new markets, expanding the business geography and consolidating fragmented markets.
If the size of a proposed transaction exceeds our target deal size of $30-50m, co-investors or leverage may be brought in. In 2006, we completed the first telecom LBO transaction in Russia (Corbina Telecom).
Our dedicated team of professionals represent a diverse mix of investment banking, private equity, management consulting, and corporate law expertise.
