Anker KassensystemeGermany · Current
Our mission is to champion Mittelstand companies by developing their full potential.
We don’t just look at financial development and profitability. We spend a lot of energy and effort to identify value chain differentiators - core competencies where we feel the companies have a different approach and a competitive edge. Next to an entrepreneurial management team and a good track-record these are the three core attributes. By focusing on these we can support to achieve the common goal of becoming market leader and increasing value in the long-term.
Close working relationships are an essential ingredient of how we work. By being transparent and open with management teams, investors and stakeholder, honouring different opinion and sharing new ideas we can be sure we are all pulling in the same direction. We want to be a pragmatic and respectful partner and are guided by our partnership principles:
