We build leading companies

We invest to contribute on an entrepreneurial, a financial and a societal level.

By thoroughly knowing the business and markets of our portfolio companies, we identify the best strategic levers to accelerate their growth. Building leading and future-proof companies means we create value through a combination of product development, sustainable organic growth, international expansion and buy and build.

Investment companies take calculated risks by investing predominantly in unlisted companies. Thanks to our balanced portfolio approach, we aim to convert the individual risks into a stable and attractive return for our shareholders.

Building leading companies equals building a prosperous society. We invest in innovative and eager-to-grow companies that develop sustainable solutions for society’s biggest challenges (mobility, health, environment, longevity…). Their success results in economic growth and qualitative job creation.
