Our approach to investing

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.
