Trust and transparency
When a company changes hands, it is both an exciting and daunting time for its founder or manager. That is why we ensure every deal is based on a strong partnership that goes beyond a purely financial perspective. Trust, transparency and alignment of interests with management teams are key.
When an investor commits to our funds, we have the same open and transparent relationship, which is inherent in our culture. Mutual trust is the foundation of our relationship.
Integrity in managing our responsibilities
We are managing a fraction of the savings of millions of people, that have been entrusted to us by very large financial institutions. We keep this responsibility in mind in everything we do.
Of equal importance, our funds as the majority shareholder of about 20 companies employing close to 10,000 employees, means that we take very seriously our duties toward these companies and their stakeholders.
Our strategy – making businesses stronger and therefore more valuable – brings a lot of coherence in managing these two responsibilities together.
