Investments in consumer, media, entertainment and sports (CMES)

Representative transactions include:


SK Global Entertainment (acquired majority stake): In 2022, Centricus acquired a majority stake in SK Global Entertainment, a leading independent film and television production and finance company known for their global success with several film and television hit productions. Centricus will provide additional capital to accelerate SK Global’s growth strategy through IP ownership and financing strategic acquisitions of complementary businesses.


Capri Palace Hotel & Spa (acquired): Centricus acquired the iconic Capri Palace Hotel & Spa. This acquisition is Centricus' first in the luxury hotel and hospitality space. The 5-star-hotel, located in Anacapri, features 68 guest rooms and is home to Capri’s only two Michelin-starred restaurants, L'Olivo and Il Riccio.


Tamara Mellon (strategic investment): Centricus led the $50 million Series C funding round for Tamara Mellon, one of the leading direct-to-consumer luxury fashion brands for women. Tamara Mellon is a British fashion entrepreneur who co-founded Jimmy Choo, a luxury footwear brand. Her namesake brand, was founded in 2016 alongside Jill Layfield, Tania Spinelli, and Tamara Mellon. The brand eliminates the 6x retail mark-up by going direct-to-consumer, ignores the fashion calendar with weekly product drops, and is committed to a women-first, customer-centric model.


Spring Place (strategic investment): In 2019, Centricus completed a strategic investment in Spring Place, the luxury and creative co-working company. Spring Place is a collaborative work-space and membership club connecting work, leisure, and entertainment for the community of global professionals and entrepreneurs in the business of shaping contemporary culture.
