Case study

About the company

Colisée is a leading European operator of nursing home facilities and home care services agencies for the elderly.

The company, with its network of 16,000 care providers and more than 270 facilities in France, Belgium, Spain and Italy, has developed a strong expertise in the care and wellbeing of elderly people.


The investment rationale

Colisée is well-positioned to benefit from strong secular trends, such as an ageing European population and an increasing shift towards privately managed elderly care.

Led by a highly experienced management team, Colisée is a consolidator in a fragmented market, acquiring small to medium sized nursing home operators in its core geographies.

Recognised for its strong operations, Colisée has a high focus on the quality of care provided to its residents.

Colisée was acquired by EQT Infrastructure and CDPQ Infrastructure in November 2020.
