Foreign Trade

The aim of our activities in this sector is to identify, evaluate, prepare and develop export-import opportunities between selected Czech and Slovak producers and leading retail groups in the countries of the former USSR.

Our Values:

Integrity – The cornerstone of our approach toward any and all our activities. Based on this value, we aim for creating and strengthening solid, long-term personal and business relationships with all our clients and partners that allow us to reach mutual understanding and achieve a balance of benefit for all parties involved.

Professionalism – In a consistent process of learning, each member of our team regards this value as the cornerstone of our success. That is why we make an effort to continuously improve our knowledge and skills, in order to operate at the highest professional level in every service we provide or every new project we implement.

Added Value – The most important measure of our effort is the desired result. Keeping in mind our first two values, achieving the result as defined by our client’s goals is, in our view, the highest proof of success. We are convinced that there is no better incentive for a continued cooperation or a referral than client satisfaction, as delivered through this value.

Companies:

 

Capital Partners Group (CPG) – Founded in 1996, the company serves as a holding and financial consolidation entity for the Group. Established as a joint stock company under the Slovak law, it owns a majority stake in all corporations of the Group. This entity does not enter into any commercial relations with parties unrelated to the Group.

 

Capital Partners Consulting (CPC) – Also established in 1996, this company manages all our consultancy assignments and projects. As the focus of our business shifted with the evolution of the Group, our core team has always adjusted to the standards and requirements of each specific business. With the aim of providing a full range of services and to remain flexible, we have developed a network of partnerships with leading professional entities in Slovakia with whom we often team up for specific jobs.

 

TruasT (TST) – The newest member of our group, this company was created to capitalize on the potential in building a trading bridge between selected Slovak producers and leading wholesale and retail entities in the countries of the former USSR. The first few months of our efforts in this field have demonstrated that our trading partners on both sides of the borders are highly motivated to translate this potential into a rapid growth of trading volumes, based on the high demand for individual products among final consumers.

Who We Are

94-05: During this period we focused our attention on activities connected with the Slovak securities and capital market created through coupon privatization. We mainly consulted and participated in or executed the following activities: full-range securities brokerage, majority stake concentration and comprehensive portfolio management. Having reached a trading turnover exceeding SKK 2.1bn in 1997, we became one of the largest non-bank-owned financial houses in Slovakia at that time.

97-05: By the end of the 1990s, the ownership of publicly traded companies became more concentrated in the hands of fewer investors. This created a demand for services connected with the trend, as well as new areas of interest for the owners: leveraged buy-outs, takeovers, M&A and restructuring of target companies. Our group participated in a number of smaller and medium size deals in the role of advisor or deal manager.

03-present: The growing number of foreign investors entering Slovakia after 2001 created a new wave of opportunities for domestic consultants with a large pool of knowledge of the local environment and its specifics, combined with a clear understanding of the needs, concerns and corporate standards of leading international corporations interested in entering Slovakia. Through our dedication to a limited number of clients and projects we built our strengths of focus, close teamwork with the client and our drive to find an optimal solution even in the most complex situation.

05-present: Our consulting and service activities in Industrial Real Estate have developed as a natural extension in response to the needs of our FDI clients. Starting with simple “search and propose” services, over the years we have grown into a full-fledged consultant and executor of complex projects in this sector.

12-present: Building on attractive opportunities in the field of trade between Slovakia and the countries of the former USSR, boosted by our team members’ long-term experience in this territory, we have expanded into the sector of wholesale trade between leading Slovak producers and some of the largest retail entities in the target countries. Even just the first few months of our efforts have demonstrated that the potential for developing mutually beneficial commercial relationships is substantially larger than generally expected.
