Our investors are successful entrepreneurs and business leaders. They have been through the cycles of building and scaling a business and know when and how to take calculated risks to create value. Their experience is reflected in our investment philosophy. We partner with owners and managers to achieve sustainable growth. We use financial leverage judiciously and allow sufficient flexibility in the capital structure.
We are an open-ended investment firm. We are able to focus on long term value creation and our decisions are not impacted by short term fund dynamics. Therefore our interests are fully aligned with those of our investors and our portfolio companies. We can be patient and strengthen a business to come out stronger after a market downturn. But we are not a holding. We aim to realize the value created over time through successful exits.
We focus on scaling growth companies in three sectors where information technology and digitization are fueling new growth opportunities:
This focus allows us to be actively and strategically involved at board level.
We provide our portfolio companies with strategic and tactical support. We partner with management to maximize value creation and deliver the plan. We can count on an advisory board consisting of experienced managers in our three focus areas to identify growth opportunities and execute on them.
