Merchant Banking

Multi Strategies

Five Arrows Minority Investments (FAMI) manages a global portfolio of private equity co-investments.

FAMI is a unique programme that was launched as a joint initiative between the Merchant Banking and Wealth Management divisions of Rothschild & Co for the exclusive benefit of key relationships of the Group.


The FAMI team also manages the balance sheet investment activity of Rothschild & Co (formerly Paris Orléans Proprietary Investments), investing in Private Equity transactions on an opportunistic basis since the 1990s.

Our investment strategy and approach

Since 2005, our team has deployed over €500 million of capital in more than 95 transactions, mainly growth capital and buyouts.

We build strong and long-lasting partnerships with a select number of well-established European and North American private equity firms.

We also acquire direct minority positions in French companies, partnering with committed management teams, founding families or lead financial sponsors.

We leverage Rothschild & Co's network and deep sector expertise to bring added value both in transaction processes and throughout our investments' lifespan.

Our dedicated team of investment professionals has a flexible mandate that enables us to target a variety of sectors where we typically invest between €5million to €30million.
