We have no predetermined holding period and therefore no pressure to realise an exit within a specified time frame. This gives us the opportunity to look further ahead than just the upcoming years:
We can invest both as majority and as minority shareholder. This among others allows us to support family companies with funding while providing them with the opportunity to maintain a majority stake
We invest both via traditional buy-outs and by providing growth capital. The latter allows us to invest in fast growing companies, in which we can continue to provide funding also after an initial investment.
We stimulate management teams in their entrepreneurship and proactively support them:
With SHV as a shareholder, we have ample supply of capital and the ability to provide follow-up investments in our portfolio companies also after the initial equity investment.
