In April 2018 Serafin opened a new investments office at Berkeley Square, Mayfair in London. Following the Group’s strategy to strengthen its international portfolio, the London office focuses on acquisitions in the UK, Benelux and Scandinavia.
With the successful integration of Playtop Licensing Ltd. and John Artis Ltd., two add-on acquisitions in the UK, Serafin is looking forward to promote its growth outside the German speaking region. Presence in London will allow the Group to focus on new anchor investments as well as add-on transactions to the existing portfolio companies.
The office is headed by Megha Kapoor and focuses on the acquisition of established mid-sized companies with a need for operational improvement.
Megha holds an MBA from the Indian School of Business and completed her Chartered Accountancy degree in 2004. She started her career over 15 years ago at Arthur Andersen and then proceeded to work for Ernst & Young in their Assurance as well as their Transaction Advisory Services practice. She has also worked for JM Morgan Stanley in Investment Banking before joining Serafin in Munich. During these years, Megha has executed several private M&A transactions and has also assisted companies in public offerings.
As of April 2018, Megha leads Serafin’s London investments and is responsible for equity investments in the UK, Benelux and Scandinavia as a Managing Director of the Serafin Group Limited.
