Value Investments


  • Our deal-by-deal approach does not restrict us in terms of investment size or region

  • This allows us to focus on the most promising value-investment opportunities - often with an anticyclical approach

  • For every investment, we individually develop the optimal investor base without a blind-pool risk for our investors

Transaction Certainty


  • Almost all of our more than 20 investments had to pass the change of control process with financial supervisory authorities

  • Our 100% success track record in obtaining all requested regulatory approvals reflects our strong reputation with European financial regulatory authorities

  • Thereby, we provide maximal transaction certainty to sellers and our investors



  • As former top managers in financial services companies, all our partners have personally experienced the daily challenges for executives of financial institutions themselves

  • Based on this experience, we support the management team as sparring partners with good business judgment

  • In close and trustful collaboration, we empower managers to become entrepreneurs so that they can unlock the full potential of their business without the restrictions of a large group
