Our approach

Through an active partnership model, we support companies across all industries on their growth path. The PE Funds portfolio consists of 10 companies in various sectors. We have an international approach but focus on companies that have a strong link to the Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We are currently investing from Fund V with a total equity commitment of €800 million.

We firmly believe that people make the difference, investments in digitization are key and excellence in everything you do makes you stand out from the crowd. Every growth path is different and we actively support our companies with investments, pursuing add-on acquisitions or exploring international growth. Entrepreneurs and management teams take the lead and we build on their experience and knowledge. We can accelerate growth initiatives with our expertise and the involvement of our in-house Human Capital and Digitization experts, focusing on building similar competences within the companies.

Egeria encourages growth initiatives that drive sustainable value creation rather than short-term gains. The common denominators we seek in our investments include strong market positions, sustainable business models and committed teams. That is what boldly building together means to us.

Our expertise

Human Capital

Human capital@2x

The success of an organization depends on the people. We focus on building winning teams in our portfolio companies through capabilities such as team building, talent selection, succession planning, and learning and development. But being successful together is not only a rational or intellectual exercise: we also focus on syncing our heads with our hearts in order to achieve a sustainable high performance.

See how we build high-performing teams at Egeria.

Digitization

Digitization@2x

Digital technologies are key drivers in every industry, on the one hand enabling new business models and more efficient operations and on the other hand requiring different capabilities when it comes to security and privacy.

At Nooteboom Textiles we are making the shift from an analogue wholesaler to a digital disruptor. Interested in finding out how?

Commercial effectiveness

Understanding our customers’ problems is key for sustainable growth. Drafting a commercial roadmap based on data insights and translating that strategy into customer propositions, pricing models, sales team dynamics and innovative product-market combinations leads to topline growth. We know what it takes for you to increase your commercial effectiveness.

Selected acquisitions can accelerate growth in new markets and geographies. We can support management actively through our experience in M&A and our broad network of industry experts.

See how we transformed GoodLife Foods from a Benelux frozen meat company to a North-West European frozen snack platform.

International expansion

International expansion@2x

The majority of our portfolio companies have an international footprint or plan to expand their business abroad. It is critical to understand that one size does not necessarily fit all. Local business practices and customs need to be taken into account when setting up shop abroad. At Egeria we have experience in expanding internationally.

Take a look at how we helped MCi to obtain a significant sales and production footprint in China.

“Thanks to Egeria we can respond quickly to developments and immediately manufacture large volumes.”
