It's in our DNA

Who we are

Platina is an independent and FCA-regulated European investment firm established in 2002. With a talent for unravelling opportunities that are often deemed complex, difficult or unusual, we are committed to delivering returns to both investors and entrepreneurs. Team

As a principal investor driven by long term trends, we remain flexible enough to come up with innovative solutions and team up with like-minded peers. Work with us

What we are like

Agile, pragmatic and transparent are the three words summing up our supportive culture.

As we understand that each situation has its own requirements, we have built our firm around flexibility and professionalism in order to offer more than a financial contribution.

By sharing our knowledge, network and resources, we strive to fairly balance our hands-on approach with the requirement for entrepreneurs to forge their own path.

While we keep our entrepreneurial mindset and family roots at heart, we have institutionalized our business to become a highly transparent and regulated firm, where both small and large investors enjoy a direct relationship with us.

A clear and long-standing reputation

This transaction is a key step in Cap Vital Santé growth story. The company was looking for a financial partner to support its development and its professionalisation. Platina was particularly suitable to our project through their market knowledge, their flexibility and their experience in supporting fast growing companies.

Régis Naulin
Chairman and founder of Cap Vital Santé

With Platina as sponsor, the Univet group will have the means to become a leading national player in the veterinary space. Its in-depth knowledge of the sector, its flexibility in terms of investment horizon as well as its reinvestment capacity makes it a particularly good fit to our project.
