FSN Capital Partners opens an office in Munich and hires Robin Muerer and Justin Kent as Partners to lead the investment effort in the DACH region.

FSN Capital Partners (“FSN Capital”) has opened an office in Munich and taken its first step in establishing a long-term presence in the DACH region. Joining the new office as Partners are Robin Muerer and Justin Kent who combined bring more than two decades of experience investing in the DACH region to the FSN Capital team.

Having spent the past ten years with Apax Partners in Munich and in London, Robin has focused primarily on investing in the digital, consumer and healthcare sectors. Justin has spent the last twelve years of his career focusing on small and midcap investments throughout Europe, first at The Riverside Company and, more recently, at Capvis Equity Partners, where he focused exclusively on investing in the DACH region.

“Expanding into Germany is a significant milestone and a natural step in FSN Capital’s progression. The hiring of two new Partners represents a substantial investment for us and underlines the vast potential that we see in the DACH region. We are proud to welcome Robin and Justin to the team to lead this effort” noted Frode Strand-Nielsen, founder and Managing Partner of FSN Capital. Patrice Jabet, Partner based in Munich, added: “Robin and Justin bring significant experience and a broad network from the DACH region. Equally important, they are truly decent people who share the values and ethos of our Firm.”

“FSN Capital has a highly successful track record of partnering with founders and management teams. By investing creatively, with a focus on doing the right thing for the company and all stakeholders involved, the FSN Funds have delivered outstanding returns to investors. Frode has built an exceptional team with a strong moral compass, and it is a true privilege to become a part of it,” notes Robin Mürer. Supporting Robin´s view, Justin Kent notes “I was impressed by FSN Capital’s unique culture and its commitment to building a strong local presence in the DACH market. I find the ability to generate such outstanding returns in a responsible and sustainable way to be remarkable. I am truly humbled by the opportunity to join this great team.”
