CREIAMO LEADER

DI MERCATO

Siamo AUCTUS

Con oltre 350 investimenti dal 2001, AUCTUS è il gestore di fondi di private equity più attivo in Germania. La nostra strategia di buy-and-build ha creato più leader di mercato di qualsiasi altro fondo nell’ Europa di lingua tedesca. Siamo investitori di maggioranza, specializzati in aziende di piccole-medie dimensioni, e forniamo capitale per la crescita e ulteriori acquisizioni.

AUCTUS (dal latino augere = aumentare) significa accrescimento, sviluppo, e questa parola è stata scelta per rappresentare al meglio la nostra filosofia di “crescita sostenibile”: insieme agli azionisti e ai manager co-investitori, puntiamo a un costante aumento del valore delle aziende in virtù di un percorso di crescita sia organica che inorganica.

AUCTUS è indipendente e di proprietà dei Senior Partner.

“Diamo alle nostre aziende il tempo di cui hanno bisogno, per passare dall’essere una buona azienda di piccole-medie dimensioni ad un leader di mercato a livello globale.“

Dr. Ingo Krocke, Fondatore

Awards

We are proud to look back on a multitude of outstanding international awards. These reflect the success we’ve achieved by bringing german medium-sized companies to market leadership, but also our spirit of partnership with our entrepreneurs and managers and our flexible and innovative capital solutions.
No other German-speaking fund has received more international awards. Whilst this makes us very happy and proud, it also is a constant reminder to work even harder to maintain our number one position and to continue to build the future market leaders.
