Press release: HANNOVER Finanz records brisk investment activity


Private equity company continues portfolio expansion with fast-growing medium sized businesses - Buoyant business in Austria - Vienna base well positioned for the DACH region - First investment of 2015 completed

The HANNOVER Finanz Group, based in Hanover and Vienna, reports its first new investment of 2015 in Deurotech Group GmbH, and one of the most successful divestments in the company's 36 year history with the sale of its shares in the Austrian Schrack group. With its tailor-made investment models, especially for medium sized enterprises, the HANNOVER Finanz Group has established an excellent reputation among entrepreneurs and their families, who particularly value the Group's preparedness to enter into long-term commitments. In contrast to the standard investment duration of around 5 years in the private equity sector, the equity capital partner retains its holdings for 8 years on average. The Group is backed by institutional investors from the insurance industry who make their funds available for an indefinite period. Enquiries from family businesses continued to increase in 2014, in particular in preparation for corporate succession and further growth with the support of HANNOVER Finanz as a majority or minority shareholder.
