Fairness and respect determine how we interact with our customers. Authenticity, confidentiality and reliability are the fundamental values of our work.


Interaction and cooperation, both in business and private life, are characterised by understanding and comprehension. To build a successful relationship to our customers a mutual understanding and knowledge of the values supporting them is an important foundation. Our patterns of behaviour and ways of thinking are shaped by this. These are the characteristics or scopes of action that determine the way we work:

A down-to-earth mentality and calmness

Individuality and unconventional thinking

Continuity and discipline

Curiosity and focus

In a respectful and fair cooperation with our customers, managers and shareholders, we wish to collaborate with you in a results-oriented and successful manner, realise innovative solutions and achieve results that are sustainable and satisfying in the long term.
To this end, we appreciate mutual respect and the necessary discretion.

We mainly provide our services to listed companies or those companies wishing to go public but also to young companies, e.g. to finance growth

Success Stories

We are specialised in supporting small and medium-sized companies – a lot of our customers are “SMEs managed by entrepreneurs”. To financial investors, we are a competent partner, helping portfolio companies over a long period of time in developing their ability to act on the capital markets. We see ourselves as a company’s companion for the duration of a transaction and provide our specific expertise from more than 30 transactions. In cooperation with you, we want to make a small contribution to your company’s success story – maybe you will soon read your own story here?
