We are the Natland Investment Group. We operate primarily on the Czech and Slovak markets. We mainly invest capital in medium-sized companies, strategically we focus on the areas of energy and real estate – residential and multi-purpose. Through specialised investment funds, we administer our own assets as well as those of our shareholders and qualified investors. Our competitive advantage is based on our expertise in the area of crisis management of companies in complex situations.
The Natland Group was founded in 2002 by Tomáš Raška, originally as a company specialising in mergers and acquisitions. Subsequently it was transformed into an investment boutique, also thanks to co-investments with M&A clients. Over time, Natland Group’s profile was refined to financial investor into medium-sized companies; the consultancy segment was sold off to the management in 2010.
In 2014, it expanded to include a real estate segment, upon the acquisition of a stake in M & K Real Estate, becoming Natland Real Estate, a developer of residential and multi-purpose real estate projects as well as Group’s projects involving investments in development though the fund Natland investiční fond SICAV, a.s. and its sub-fund Natland Real Estate.
At present, the Group’s partners are also Karel Týc, David Manych and Jana Sečkářová.
How Do We Invest
Our strategic focus is energy and real estate, our aim is steady growth. To the companies and projects that become part of our portfolio we bring high-quality financial management, administration and asset utilisation, which results in higher market valorisation. In the primary phase we finance from our own resources, after stabilisation the variant of outside financing, e.g., by a bank, becomes an option. We valorise companies, equity as well as our investors’ capital.
