Private Equity Investment Approach
We manage a €200m fund to invest expansion capital and buy-out capital in high growth, later stage companies with both an economic and environmental value proposition in the areas of Energy, Industry & Environment. We apply Private Equity value creation to Growth Capital and vice versa.

Minority or control equity positions; typically as lead or co-lead
Growth capital, buy-outs (MBO/MBIs) and “buy & build”
Product, services or technology companies
Material commercial revenues, with strong growth in large addressable markets
