Experienced Capital is a private equity firm created in January 2016 by Frédéric Biousse, Elie Kouby and Emmanuel Pradère together with a limited number of private investors and family offices.
Experienced Capital focuses on Retail and Digital brands in the Affordable Luxury segment, across all the following sectors: fashion, accessories, beauty, jewelry, household goods, children, food and technology.
Our philosophy is unique in the private equity landscape: we bring together what we have experienced while at the head of our companies and what we learned from the investors who supported us over the last years.
Nothing beats operational experience:
Experienced Capital Management's team of operational experts are involved in the portfolio's companies alongside founders to support them in the structuring and development of their brands.
All team members share a strong entrepreneurial culture, and benefit from recognized expertise in Retail.
Experienced Capital Partners is not a traditional fund; it's an investment holding created as a simplified joint stock company (Société par Actions Simplifiées, SAS). As a result, the company enjoys greater flexibility and responsiveness in making and monitoring its investments. Experienced Capital Partners SAS is an "Other Alternative Investment Fund (Fonds d'Investissement Alternatifs, FIA)," in the sense of the French Financial Markets' Authority (AMF) provision no. 2013-16.
Financial investments are held by Experienced Capital Partners SAS. Our team of operational experts operates under Experienced Capital Management SAS, the company that manages Experienced Capital's holdings.
