PONTIS Capital

Privately held, independent
Investment Company and Consultancy


PONTIS Capital was founded by Gerhard Fiala and selected partners in March 2005. The company was soon recognized for its success as an independent management company for small institutional private equity funds. Managed as a partnership until 2015, the firm focused on small and medium sized technology-oriented enterprises, primarily in the German-speaking region. During this period, PONTIS successfully supported numerous portfolio companies in a broad variety of strategic and financial matters and helped these companies achieve their growth targets. This was often followed by a trade sale to strategic partners (corporates) or globally active financial investors (buyout funds) in the US and the EU.


Today, PONTIS Capital is a private, owner-led investment company and consultancy that focuses on strategic projects and transactions within the EU. It also focuses on entrepreneurial activities in sustainable growth industries.

Reflecting its founder´s professional background, the company represents over two decades of stability and experience in the business of investments and transactions (Private Equity, M&A, Corporate Finance, IPO) as well as in building and running companies with focus on financial management across diverse innovation-oriented and technology-oriented sectors. This experience also provides the basis of a strong network of well-established financial investors, banks, large consulting firms, and companies from small- and medium sized enterprises to industrial corporations operating both nationally and internationally.

Mr. Fiala was initiator, co-founder and first chairman of the board of the Austrian umbrella organisation AVCO - Austrian Private Equity and Venture Capital Organisation (2000 - 2004) and member of the Board of Directors of the European umbrella organisation EVCA - European Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (now Invest Europe) (2005 - 2009).

Andreas Rosenberger joined PONTIS Capital as a partner in March 2023 with the aim of establishing the Institutional Real Estate business. Mr. Rosenberger is a proven real estate investment expert and has decades of international leadership experience in the institutional real estate business with a focus on real estate financing and consulting on an equity, mezzanine and debt basis, real estate private equity, project development and fund management of open-ended real estate special funds and closed-end structures.

His last positions include board level mandates at IVG Immobilien AG (now Patrizia AG) in Frankfurt and Vienna, VALUES Realestate GmbH in Hamburg, HRI in Luxembourg, as well as various positions in the Raiffeisen Group.


PONTIS Capital is backed by a dedicated group of experts and professional partners in all relevant areas of the industry, finance (including behavioral finance), and law.

From the very beginning, PONTIS has been firmly committed to competence, dedication, trust and reliability in each single business relationship. This commitment continues to form the basis for sustained and shared success.
