About us

We are an independent, partner-owned, private equity investor. We originate the pipeline and make final investment decisions independently.

Resource Partners was created in 2009 by former core members of The Carlyle Group CEE. Since then we have successfully raised over EUR400 million to invest in small and medium sized companies in Central and Eastern Europe.

We specialize in fast-growing companies with experienced management, and we support them in managing rapid organic growth or through M&A transactions. As entrepreneurs, we understand our partners, their expectations and the problems they face. We bring our businesses the added value of our years of experience in management, advice and supervision of companies in the sector.

We differ from other investors because:

We focus only on one industry

We invest in companies specializing in consumer products and services because we have unparalleled knowledge of this sector.

Quick decision-making process

We make decisions rapidly, but in accordance with the best practices of the investment process.

Transparency

We build partnerships with owners, openly communicate with them, keep our promises, and follow the strictest possible corporate governance standards.
