As a family-backed investor, we are committed to values such as responsibility, integrity, confidentiality and sustainability. We believe in sustainable investing with patient entrepreneurial capital. True to the tradition of our family-owned business, we expect total commitment and the utmost professionalism – from ourselves and from our partners.
This commitment to ethical values provides the ideal basis for sustained and trustful cooperation. Only by working together can we then go on to create lasting value. We only commit to an investment if there is open dialogue from the outset, leading to a shared understanding of the value each party can contribute. We also appreciate that there is more to a business than cash flows alone. Our principal focus is the human capital: experience, ability and values.
Every company is also an integral part of society, for which it shares responsibility – as an employer, as an honest partner for customers and suppliers, and as an influence on the community and wider environment. These are issues that concern us in our work and in our investments. Together with many of the portfolio companies, we support a range of initiatives in our immediate communities that make a positive and lasting contribution to society.
