The opening of the new branch is consistent with PEP’s belief that internationalisation will represent a fundamental driver for Italian companies’ growth where Poland will represent the key market to drive their entry into the emerging Eastern European economies.
The activities of PEP Polska within Poland will be initially carried out by Miszerak & Assocaites Sp. Zo.o., a merchant banking boutique founded and headed by Martin Miszerak, a senior professional with extensive experience in merchant banking, private equity asset management and restructuring and privatisation of large state-owned companies, both financial and non-financial. The core business of Miszerak & Associates is advice on mergers and acquisitions, capital market transactions and capital raising as well as strategic advice for financial institutions.
The opening of the Polish offices follows PEP’s expansion in the Chinese and Russian markets with the opening of offices in Shanghai and Moscow.
