We have been building the value of companies for 20 years already. We are growing our own capital and that of the investors with whom we work. We have been involved with about 25 companies.

 

Jet Investment in a nutshell

We are an investment company and manager of Jet Funds for qualified investors under the regulation of the Czech National Bank. Investment projects are financed by combining our own funds with capital entrusted to us by institutional investors from the Czech Republic and abroad. Individual private investors, too, can make private equity investments with us. We have been offering this possibility through Jet Funds since 2015. We bring investors attractive earnings on their invested funds over the long term. Over the past 20 years, in fact, we have achieved an IRR of 25% p.a.

Since our establishment in 1997, we have focused on investing into small and medium-sized industrial companies across the entire CEE region. With our 20 years of experience in private equity, we can provide companies the financial and strategic support to achieve further growth. We specialize in late-stage venture, growth, buy-out, and turnaround/rescue investments. In our history, we have supported, restructured, and reorganized 25 enterprises and stood behind several significant court-permitted reorganizations of manufacturing companies in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Jet Investment moves to new headquarters at Hlinky Street in Brno

From approximately the turn of the millennium, Jet Investment is turning to more sophisticated methods of restructuring. In addition to cost, asset, or financial aspects, it devotes itself especially to the areas of business strategy and quality of management. In addition to restructuring, there also are projects requiring liquidation in companies having attractive assets but no prospects for long-term success in the market. Selected acquisitions remain in the Jet Investment portfolio to this day.

Foundation of Jet Investment

Igor Fait, together with partners Lubor Turza and Libor Šparlinek, establishes Jet Investment. From its very beginning, the investment group is focused on restructuring industrial companies. The first projects with unutilized assets and inefficient structures involve primarily managerial decision-making with the aim of rationalizing business operations and financial management.
