Do something good to Society and generate above Market Returns

OUR

MISSION

Impact with Return is our Passion

We are convinced that following social and ecological investment criteria and generating competitive returns is not contradictory but can go hand-in-hand. The world's most pressing challenges are too urgent for capital to underperform.

 

A key element to achieve sustainability and return goals is, however, a thorough analytical and rational approach in analyzing investment opportunities. We want to apply our best-in-class due diligence approach and over 50 years of experience in analyzing and implementing private equity and venture capital transactions, often for some of the most sophisticated investors and founders, to the field of impact investing.

 

Through our large network of (i) funds and investors investing in various asset classes, transaction types and growth stages, (ii) potential joint venture strategic partners and (iii) operational advisors and future team members, we help our portfolio companies to grow and develop them into the future leaders of their field in their respective country or region.

We apply the analytical tools and experience developed through our more than 50 years of aggregate experience as advisors, founders, partners, investors and board members of established companies, private equity funds and start-ups. Our highly qualified investment team has developed its own impact measurement tool and is composed of multidisciplinary members from our geographic target markets - Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Africa.
