Private Equity

We particularly favor cross-border investments that benefit from European integration or provide opportunity for global distribution. We seek to maximize value through the divestiture of assets of large companies, and from enhancing the strategic and operational expertise of family-owned businesses.


Our private equity strategies focus on a broad range of regions and market sectors, and they combine traditional private equity and distress-for-control activities. Using a flexible and opportunistic approach, we invest in companies we believe to be undervalued. We seek to enhance value through key strategic and tactical initiatives, including rightsizing capital structures, streamlining operations, improving core businesses, and creating new platforms for growth. Our teams leverage deep sector knowledge and extensive proprietary networks to gain superior access to deal flow, and they reflect our Group emphasis on risk control and downside protection.

  • Corporate Private Equity
  • Special Situations

Our corporate private equity strategies focus on making control investments in undervalued companies across a variety of industries and sectors.

In certain cases, our corporate private equity strategies also pursue platform investments in industries that are out of favor or undergoing structural change.

Our special situations strategy utilizes a highly flexible approach in seeking control-oriented debt and equity investments in middle-market companies experiencing distress or in need of capital solutions.

The strategy combines expertise in both credit and private equity investing and seeks to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns by targeting investments with significant upside potential, buying assets cheap, and improving both operations and capital structure.
