Approach

Own business perspective

We approach each client’s business mandate as if it were our own business. We share our clients’ passion for their business which allows us to provide them with value-added solutions and identify strategic opportunities beyond the scope of our immediate assignment that would benefit their enterprise.

Entrepreneurial

We are driven by the desire to help our clients succeed through the application of our expertise and that of our colleagues at Rothschild & Co. Our ambition is to continue to establish the brand name of Entrea Capital as a leading regional financial advisory firm.

Independent

We take pride in our ability to deliver world-class independent and objective advice to our clients as part of complex financial assignments and consider this to be our key asset and what distinguishes us from the competition.

Unique approach to value creation

Our team members have diverse advisory and investment banking experience in Bulgaria and abroad. This enables us to bring a unique combination of global and local approach to each of our assignments. Our perspective allows us to help clients maximise financial value while simultaneously achieve non-financial strategic objectives.

Long-term strategic partnership

We work closely with our clients throughout the different stages of their development. In addition to helping them with specific transactions, we add value through our extensive management and operating experience across industries.

Local expertise and international reach

We bridge our unparalleled local expertise with our global contact network via our affiliation with Rothschild & Co to bring the best investor or partner in any transaction or to secure the most attractive financing terms for our clients.
