All across Europe, there are numerous undiscovered investment opportunities with great potential. These are industrial enterprises. Some of them are on the verge of expansion, while others await a return to the premier league. They have one thing in common: a need for funding and know-how. We have both. Bringing in someone who has been searching out and managing companies for 20 years, as we have, minimizes the risk of such investment. Jet Funds for qualified investors can provide you an opportunity to participate with us in large-scale private equity investments and to profit from their high returns.
Two years ago, more than 100 investors from across the Czech Republic and abroad decided to invest into the Jet 1 Fund. To date, that fund has achieved a valuation gain of 16% p.a. We would like to offer the same opportunity also to you.
Thank you for your interest in Jet 2 Fund. We fully understand that you will not want to decide online about such an important investment. We would like to speak with you about your objectives and perhaps agree a suitable date for a personal meeting.

How to become a Jet 2 investor
Each and every investor is an individual. We will discuss your needs and questions in person at a face-to-face meeting. If you will have an unanswered question, we will be pleased to answer it over a cup of coffee. If you have any concerns, we will work with you to address them. Give us a call, and we will agree a date that works for you.
The first three years of the investment horizon, which is established in Jet 2’s case as eight to ten years, will be the busiest period for you. From 2018 to 2021, Jet Investment will gradually call up the funding from its investors and use them to make acquisitions in target businesses. When this so-called “capital call” is made, you will have 30 days to send the required amount to the Fund. Upon paying in per the capital call, you will receive shares in the Fund in dematerialized form.
Have you decided to invest with us? We value your trust! Our first step together will be to sign an investment contract. This is an agreement whereby you undertake to invest in Jet 2 by subscribing to shares. The contract clearly defines the maximum amount you intend to invest and that must not be exceeded. Along with your contract, you also will receive the Fund’s Articles of Association, which spell out the rights and obligations of its members, as well as the Fund’s Bylaws, which clearly define Jet 2 Fund’s investment strategy and are presented to the Czech National Bank.
Jet Investment’s managers have the same objective as you do throughout the Fund’s entire existence: return the acquisition value of the shares back to you as quickly as possible. They have a purely pragmatic reason for that. Until what you have invested is back on your account, the investment company and its founders are not entitled to the performance fee. Although we cannot predict when exactly this will happen (probably in the second half of the horizon), we can assure you that we are maximally motivated to make it happen as soon as possible.
At the end of the investment horizon, only liquid assets will remain in the Fund – that means funds from the sale of the portfolio companies. At that time, Jet 2 will be transformed from a closed to an open-ended fund, thus enabling you to exit by its buying back your shares. We believe that eight to ten years from the time of your investment this will be a pleasant obligation.
Investments into qualified investor funds, such as Jet funds, are not open to the general public. Jet funds allow investors – most frequently financial institutions and individuals – to take part in much larger investment opportunities than they would be able to achieve by themselves. That means you can invest with us only if you are aware of the risks that accompany investing into the Fund and if the investment is appropriate for your financial situation. You must confirm this fact in a declaration even before you invest. Your status as a qualified investor is then confirmed by the Fund’s administrator.
The minimum investment into Jet 2 Fund is CZK 1 million, and there is no upper limit. However, the invested amount determines which entity you will deal with in making your investment. Investments of CZK 10 million and more are our responsibility, and you will therefore sign the investment contract with a representative of Jet Investment. If you decide to invest less then CZK 10 million, our partner CONSEQ will work with you. This arrangement will allow us to dedicate more time and personal care to each investor. Whichever amount you decide to invest, your rights and obligations as an investor remain the same.
For Jet 2, we have established a target internal rate of return, after deducting all expenses and fees, at 15% per year or more. Our Jet 1 Fund is achieving our assumed rate of return, having reaching 16% p.a. in two years.
Jet 2 Fund’s subscription period is from March to October 2018. If you are seriously considering an investment, it is best to contact us as soon as possible. In case the Fund will be fully subscribed prior to the final date, it no longer will be possible to invest in the Fund. We would only be able to offer you another possibility to participate in our investments and returns several years from now through the intended funds Jet 3 and Jet 4.
The Fund’s target capital value is in the range of CZK 2.5 billion to CZK 5 billion.
Ideally eight, but no more than 10 years.
The shares you own in the Fund always will correspond to the value of the assets owned (i.e. primarily illiquid ownership stakes in businesses). Therefore, it is not possible for the Fund to redeem its own shares at the investors’ request during its investment horizon.
We are of course prepared for that possibility. Even though Jet 2 Fund is a closed fund, we would honour your wish to leave the Fund’s structure. For this purpose, we have prepared so-called “auctions” for you, which will be held at least once a year and by which we can assist you in divesting of your shares. A necessary condition for selling your shares is of course that there will be interest from one or more from potential buyers. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee divestments.
If you will need to exit Jet 2 Fund before the end of its investment horizon, then during the annual auction Jet Investment will anonymously connect you with investors who are interested in buying your shares. You can transfer your shares either to current investors within the Fund or to new investors who satisfy the legal requirements of qualified investors. If you and your counterparty reach a deal through us, only then will we reveal your identity and that of your counterparty. We will handle all administration related to sale of the shares and transfer your obligations to the new investor for you.
In signing an investment contract, you undertake to invest an amount of your own choosing. You thereby give permission for Jet 2 Fund to ask for those funds during the investment period through a so-called “capital call”. During the first three years of the investment horizon, there will be several capital calls, typically before businesses are acquired. For example, Jet 1 Fund used six capital calls within its investment period. When a capital call is made, you will have 30 days to send the requested amount to the Fund. Once you have done so, you will receive a proportionate amount of shares in the Fund in dematerialized form. In addition, after each capital call you also will receive an account statement from which you can determine the precise number of shares you hold in the Fund.
We are planning to invest into eight to 15 small to medium-sized production companies in Europe from which we will build up four to five industry platforms. Considering the development phase the businesses are in, we will continue to follow our current strategy by carrying out buy-out, growth, rescue / turnaround, and late-stage venture acquisitions. We will maintain portfolio diversification while investing into industrial fields. These will include in particular the machinery, specialty chemicals, technical textiles, building materials, renewable energy, automotive, aeronautic, and railroad industries, but we also will not shy away from opportunistic investments.
As the Czech Republic’s largest private equity fund, we make it possible for individuals to invest. More than 100 entrepreneurs and managers invested into Jet 1 Fund with us, with the minimum investment in that case being CZK 5 million. In addition to individuals, Jet 2 Fund will be open also to financial institutions.
The basic fee for managing Jet 2 Fund is set at 1.8% per year. We are achieving above-average returns, however, primarily because our project managers are working every day out in the field in managing our businesses. We at Jet Investment are eligible to receive performance fees only after we fully return the acquisition value of the shares to you, typically in the second half of the investment horizon. The performance fee is 1% for the manager and 20% for the founders from the returns paid above and beyond the level of the entry investment.
Jet 2 Fund’s general partners are the partners of Jet Investment, who will hold 10–20% of the shares in the Fund. The remaining 80–90% will be held by the limited partners, primarily consisting of high net worth individuals as well as domestic and international financial institutions.
