Case examples of our portfolio companies

LJ Sports changes the world of elite sports management.

In 2020 we started LJ Sports Group (www.ljsports.group) together with Ivan Ljubičić, the coach of Roger Federer. LJ Sports renew the coaching and managing of top athletes by bringing to the market a completely new, holistic environment where athletes can optimize their career and finances.
Verona provides the solid economical and financial know-how for the athletes’ personal finances, and advise them with the contract negotiations, organizational structures, taxation, wealth planning, insurances and positioning the athlete’s brand with other business opportunities.

We have realized that growth companies and top athletes share similar characteristics, such as a passion for what they do, perseverance, goal-orientation, relentlessness, competitiveness, and resilience under pressure. That is why working with the top athletes is very familiar and rewarding for us.
