INVESTMENT PORTFOLIO

Our portfolio consists of several investment platforms in attractive, growing markets. Each platform has a distinct strategy to become a leading group in its respective market, both through organic growth and by acquiring synergistic new companies. We actively contribute our broad experience as well as a standardized set of value levers for software companies to fast-track sales growth, efficiency in development and delivery, and cloud transitions. As a result, most of our groups have significantly grown since the initial anchor investment was made.

CREATING VALUE

We go well beyond the classic value creation levers addressed by traditional Private Equity investors. The future belongs to businesses that continuously reinvent themselves to stay on top. We enable small and medium sized companies to address some of their most challenging yet rewarding opportunities: Rolling-up markets through ‘Buy & Build’ strategies, unlocking the potential of global markets through advanced ‘Internationalization’, or by transforming the company into a ‘Digital Business’.
