Parabellum Investments, the family office of its founder and CEO, Rami Cassis, owns a number of companies, one of which is Parseq. Other businesses within the Parabellum Investments portfolio cover sectors including enterprise software, business and IT services, life sciences and financial technology.
Parabellum Investments mainly deploys its own funds to acquire controlling stakes in operating companies. It can therefore make decisions quickly, transparently, and free from the red tape and bureaucracy often associated with other investment firms. It is also proud of the strong relationships forged with the management teams of its portfolio companies and places a strong emphasis on continuity of service post-acquisition and the protection of the vendor’s reputation. Indeed, the ability to implement a clear and realistic growth plan is an important consideration when looking for a company to acquire.
The deal flow of Parabellum Investments is a varied one. However, it typically acquires companies from large corporate groups seeking to dispose of non-core assets to a reputable and operational buyer or from owner operators who are also keen to ensure continuity of trading and that its employees are well looked after.
Parabellum Investments, Rami Cassis, and each of the portfolio companies have become firmly established as media commentators and thought leaders in key global media titles. News and commentary can regularly be found within global private equity, life sciences, financial technology, and general business publications. In addition, company personnel can often be found presenting and networking at some of the leading industry events within their various sectors.
Since becoming a portfolio company of Parabellum Investments, Parseq has grown significantly through organic growth and acquisitions. It is today established as one of the largest independent business services and IT providers in the UK, with more than 500 staff based across the UK, Bulgaria, and India.
