Private Equity

Cenciarini & Co. spots business opportunities, supports senior management teams in designing and generating effective business models, and creating revenue models out of them.

Our investments are often characterized by a high degree of operating complexity, that is successfully managed by our highly experienced team with the support of a long-established network of professionals, and by the ability that we have developed, in optimising operating invested capital.

In this sense, Cenciarini & Co. can be defined as an industrial promoter. The companies we support are often grown internally, and then sold to larger players, be they industrial or financial investors.

In the last years, Cenciarini & Co. has carried out several transactions, each structured in a different way, thus demonstrating our ability in devising and executing alternative solutions, modeled by the requirements of the single transaction.

Types of Transactions

Cenciarini & Co. envisages a diversified set of solutions for every transaction, and invests with different financial structures. In particular it carries out:

  • industrial promotions, i.e. the build-up of the best operating invested capital for carrying out a specific activity, and the appropriate financial and managerial structure
  • industrial and financial restructuring deals
  • outsourcing deals

Interest Areas

Both historically and perspectively, Cenciarini & Co. looks mostly to the following markets:

  • Renewable energy
  • Green business
  • Healthcare
  • Education
  • Real Estate
  • Logistics
  • ICT
  • Food and beverage


Cenciarini & Co has over 18 years of experience in unlisted infrastructure investing and advisory in Italy, having invested extensively in the telecommunication sector since the late ’90s and in renewable energy lately.

Our goal is to achieve returns through the development and construction of infrastructure assets, which are important to the functioning of regional and local economies.

We invest our own balance sheet alongside third party resources to generate recurring income and capital appreciation for our business partners and co-investors.

Our Approach

Disciplined Selection

We seek opportunities in sectors in which we are experienced and we can accurately assess and minimise risks, in order to deliver an attractive risk-adjusted return. The projects we develop generally have predictable cash flows over the long run, and are in sectors with inelastic demand and inflation linked revenues.

Distinctive Origination and
Structuring Capabilities

Cenciarini & Co. often acts as promoter of green field projects, supporting experienced managers in developing and structuring complex transactions for the construction and operation of infrastructure assets, such as power plants, healthcare platforms or senior living facilities.

Long-term Approach

We are a long-term investor with no pre-set investment horizon. This means we can hold the asset / investmentas long as it is needed to deliver the maximum risk-adjusted return.
