What drives us?

Our strategy

Our objective is to offer the best private equity experience by providing attractive returns and innovative solutions for our investors, as well as value adding services for professional investment partnerships, growth-oriented companies and tenants. In order to deliver on our objective, we have structured our business around three business areas, which are investment partnerships, professional services, and investments from our balance sheet into private equity.

Our approach to value creation

1. Investment partnerships

Our investment strategies are focused. Best in class partnerships are independently responsible for investment activities and the value creation of investments. The investment partnerships play a central role in the foundation of management fee-generating funds, selecting investments, value creation for portfolio companies and real estate, and the formation of carried interest income. CapMan has a 30-100% stake in the partnerships.

3. Own investments

We invests broadly from our balance sheet in the private equity asset class. Depending on the fund size, we invest 1–5% in our own funds. Other investments include a 28.7% stake in Norvestia, which accelerates growth investments. By increasing our investment capacity and optimising our capital structure, we seek to actively manage our balance sheet. Our interests are fully aligned with those of our clients.
