Our investment approach

Strategic and operative business development

Our holdings are supported by our broad network, industry advisory board members as well as our trusted Program Office Team on site. The latter focuses on the implementation of optimisation measures and the establishment of professional structures and processes.

Stability and sustainable increase in value are priorities

The long-term development of healthy and stable companies is our focus. Sustainable performance optimisation and close support in professionalisation processes are key success factors.

Industry experience and industry confession

The deliberate utilisation of management expertise and profound technical as well as industry knowledge are important drivers of our success. The overarching goal of our commitment is to provide the holding with guidance to reach its full potential.
