Our approach

Egeria Private Equity is structured in two teams in order to optimize value creation for each individual investment. We have a solid backbone of institutional investors, families and team commitment. The portfolio currently consists of 17 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 firmly believe that people make the difference, that investments in digitalization are key to achieve sustainable growth and that 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, add-on acquisitions or international growth. Entrepreneurs and management teams lead the way and we build on their experience and knowledge. But we do more than providing capital. For instance, we support our companies with the hands-on involvement of our in-house Human capital and Digitalization 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.

Two teams – two strategies:

Funds

We are currently investing our fifth fund with a total equity commitment of €800 million. We invest in healthy businesses in the Netherlands and the DACH region with an enterprise value of up to €350 million with the underlying principle that management is co-owner. Our investment horizon is between five and seven years on average. Our interest lies in businesses with growth potential that are active in a market with attractive prospects.
