Fund Investments

Focus

We are recognized by our partners for our entrepreneurial approach and flexibility in backing hands-on and specialist strategies. We have structured funds and transactions ranging from anchoring first-time funds to complex fund restructurings and time critical co-investments.

Primary fund investments in leading private equity funds, targeting both established managers with a demonstrated ability to generate outstanding returns, as well as first-time and emerging managers with proven track records offering innovative or disruptive solutions.

All funds we work with share the following characteristics:

  • Hands-on and active portfolio management
  • Team with profound investment experience translated in a strong track record
  • Buyout or later-stage growth
  • Special situations, turnaround, buy-and-build or sector focused strategies
  • Regional investment focus within Europe
  • Fund size < €750 million

As we have done in the past and will continue doing in the future, we have a strong focus on anchoring first-time funds and emerging managers. We distinguish ourselves though our flexibility in structuring funds and are open to speak with managers of the future.

Please refer to our primary case study and contact us when you have an approach to generate outstanding returns.

We focus on proprietary situations and work closely with GPs and offer execution speed and flexibility in structuring transactions. We have executed secondaries as part of complex fund restructurings as well as stapled-transactions and ordinary situations offering liquidity to an existing investor.

Please refer to our secondary case study and contact us when you have a creative idea or if you are looking for a partner to complete a structural change.

Exclusive direct equity co-investment opportunities into carefully selected small- and micro-cap businesses, alongside teams with a special fit to the transaction and where interests are fully aligned.

We have over 20 years of experience in investing alongside our existing network of GP’s, but also with fundless-sponsors. We are able to tailor the investment process and structure to the needs of the transaction and the GP.

When considering co-investments, we apply the same criteria as to our primary investments:

  • Hands-on and active portfolio management
  • Team with profound investment experience translated in a strong track record
  • Buyout or later-stage growth
  • Special situations, turnaround, buy-and-build or sector focused strategies
  • Regional investment focus within Europe

Please refer to our co-investment case study and contact us when you have an interesting investment idea.
