How We Work

We believe that each deal requires a strategy on its own. We therefore assess each opportunity individually based on its market context and individual characteristics.

We distinguish between valuation and opportunity, as all depends ultimately on the probability of expected return. We therefore focus on understanding the business concept first.

We consider ourselves entrepreneurs and like to work with business owners. Based on our long experience and track record we like to position ourselves as their partners and advisors to make win-win deals. We participate in both majority and minority transactions, but always with active and hands-on role of our team.

We think the devil is always in the details. We therefore strongly believe in the need of going the extra mile to understand a business and its challenges - talking to clients, employees, stakeholders to understand the business opportunity at hand.

No deal fits perfectly a given strategy. We believe in the need to seize opportunities as they arise and adapt to the given context. While staying disciplined in applying principles, we are prepared to think outside the box.

„We consider ourselves entrepreneurs and like to work hand in hand with our portfolio companies, aiming to be a strategic partner and not just a capital provider.”
