Value Add / opportunistic

Through our participation in Origami European Holdings (www.origamicapital.com), we invest in all asset classes in special situations in Germany, the UK, Spain and Poland. Our investment sweet spot is between €3 million and €50 million. The achievable returns should reflect the risk of the investments.

In addition, we invest in commercial real estate with long-term leases in good or very good locations in German cities and towns. Our ideal investment size here is between €1 million and €20 million.

We invest directly in companies that solve a specific problem and have an excellent management team. Our focus is on real estate-related services and the fitness sector. In addition to providing capital, we offer advice on growth and company building as well as support through our network.

Distressed companies

We take on companies that are in need of restructuring or that are currently undergoing restructuring with the goal of reorganisation. The turnover of the company must amount to at least €10 million.
