SFS Group had invested in a number of private companies in Cyprus in an attempt to turn them around and either list them on the Cyprus Stock Exchange or trade sell them.
In 2007, having re-assessed its modus operandi, SFS Group decided to change from its conglomerate holdings model to a more agile portfolio investments approach. As part of the new strategy, SFS Group is in the process of executing optimal exit strategies for its Private Equity portfolio while reassessing its position for its Venture Capital portfolio.
