As a private equity investor, FINVEST funds its companies, builds portfolios and looks for successful exits. As a “company builder”, however, FINVEST uses its own ideas and resources going about it and is much more involved in all operational aspects of its portfolio companies than traditional private equity firms. Investment themes and business ideas are developed in-house. FINVEST then builds business models for them, invests its own capital and hires management. Eventually, FINVEST may raise additional capital by inviting like-minded co-investors to join in. In most cases, FINVEST´s partners hold leadership and director positions in its companies.
partner of choice
Early on since its founding, FINVEST began to come across other entrepreneurs who desired more than just capital from an investment partner and thus started to support them as a value-adding investor. Through its venture capital arm, FINVEST provides seed or early stage capital to promising new companies along with guidance and mentoring. Due to its permanent capital structure, FINVEST is not under pressure to deploy capital nor to exit its investments in order to provide liquidity to LPs or expedite carried interest payments to investment professionals.
