Culture of

idi EM Partners is born with the support of highly demanding European institutions and has promoted a culture of excellence since inception.

All what we do is driven by rigorous processes, strong individual commitments and a full transparency shared by all our staff. We are always questioning how things can be done better, from internal organisation, operations to investors relations. For us, a quality and quick execution is key, but internal processes are everything as they are the result of our accumulated rich experience.

We are a team of entrepreneurs and are accountable for what our company is doing in front of our partners and clients. Passionate about our business, we like to fully understand what we do before moving steps by steps. This entrepreneurial culture enables us to have deep understanding on challenges the entrepreneurs and partners we collaborate with face, and to assist on addressing issues when appropriate.


With diversified backgrounds in the investment sector (growth, leverage buy-out and venture capital), idi EM Partners team is driven by an investor mindset focused on quality and returns.

idi EM Partners team has the skills to approach investment opportunities with direct equity investor’s attitude which allows it to relate to and interact closely with its local partners (fund managers, co-investors, entrepreneurs). This not only translates into its ability to source attractive and sometimes proprietary investment opportunities, but also its capabilities to carryout professional and detailed due diligence and to make appropriate judgements according to the local cultures and practices.


The group of partners and employees of idi EM Partners puts special emphasis on ethical business practices and compliance issues.

Idi EM Partners is also a socially responsible investor as we strongly believe that long-term returns on investments cannot be achieved without non-financial impacts at a wider level. It has signed the Principles for Responsible Investment instituted by the United Nations, and is in accordance with ESG compliances by paying attention to build environmental, social and corporate governance.
