Our client is a mid market Private Equity investor with a successful track record spanning 20 years. The firm operates across Europe from 3 offices and specialises in taking majority and significant minority stakes in businesses where they can aid the growth of the company through adding expert operational input. Typical deal values are between €100m and €500m and the team will look at most sectors, but with an emphasis on Healthcare, Industrials and Tech Services.
