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.

ESG Mission Statement:

We regard good business and social responsibility as two sides of the same coin. Only highly motivated employees can generate good investments, satisfy investors and hence lead us all to business success. All employees adhere to our key values and leadership principles and we treat the health, safety and career development of our teams as a top priority. We advocate transparent policies to achieve improved levels of sustainability in all our portfolio companies and we follow the strictest possible corporate governance standards.

In this way we try to work in the best interests of our stakeholders and the environment and succeed as a socially responsible investor.

We are UNPRI signatories.

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.
