Investment Strategy

V4C funds typically invest in buy-out or growth capital transactions, often in partnership with owners or managers of the target businesses. We are oriented to situations that offer the potential for consolidation and/or buy-and-build opportunities either in a domestic market or across the region. 

Our preference is for:

  • controlling stakes, although we will take minority positions in syndicates of like minded investors or where we have an ability to strongly influence the business and our liquidity.
  • platform companies with strong or leading position in their sector, enabling them to execute consolidation and organic growth strategies with the support of V4C
  • opportunities where we can deploy €10m - €25m of equity per transaction.

We focus our investment activities particularly on services, including outsourced services, healthcare and production activities that are closely integrated into a value chain.  We look for businesses serving local communities, where the local delivery of the service or product is essential.

We seek to support empowered management teams as the region increasingly integrates with the rest of Europe.  We look to work with owners transiting their businesses to corporate ownership and management teams committed to the company’s growth and development.
