An entrepreneurial spirit focuses our interest on lifestyle companies that offer a creative and unique brand experience. To secure a profitable investment, we commit to mid-sized international organizations in fashion, leisure and real estate that have strong growth potential and an original and internationally scalable brand proposition.
We initiate investments in solid, well-managed companies with an annual turnover of €25 to 250 million, including spin-offs and buy-outs not related to the core business. Our criteria for investment includes a seat on the board to ensure influence over strategic decisions and to safeguard sustainable profit and cash flow. The existing management team must be capable, experienced and motivated, and we always discuss our exit strategy with them after a typical investment period of five to seven years.
As an independent private equity firm, we adopt a longer-term investment horizon. Without external pressure to terminate investments early, we are free to asses market conditions and plan our exit at a time that will maximize profit.
