Invision AG opens office in Germany, strengthening the existing team with Peter Kroha as Managing Director

Invision AG, one of the leading private equity firms focused on succession situations and management buyouts based in Zug and Jersey, is opening a new office in Düsseldorf. Peter Kroha, will be responsible for running Invision Private Equity GmbH, targeting investments in the German market and supporting the deployment of the €285 million Invision V fund, raised in 2013.

Peter Kroha spent the last 15 years working for Montagu Private Equity, where he was responsible for all investment activities in the DACH region. A member of both the investment and management committee, he has an extensive buyout track record. Prior to Montagu, he worked for HSBC Investment Bank, with a focus on mezzanine finance. He has a law degree and business diploma.

At Invision, Peter Kroha will be responsible for new investments and monitoring portfolio companies. He will be joining the investment committee.

Peter Kroha: “Private capital for the Mittelstand segment in Germany, in particular in owner buyout situations and non-core corporate spin-offs, will continue to play an important role in the small to mid-cap segment. Invision’s expertise and know-how in these types of transactions is unrivalled. The firm‘s excellent culture and existing track record of investing in German speaking regions, is really compelling and I am very excited to be joining. I am looking forward to working with Invision to help highperforming businesses manage their next phase of growth and to support the continued expansion of Invision’s franchise in the DACH region.”

Frank Becker: “We are delighted to welcome Peter Kroha to the Invision team at a time of attractive investments across the DACH region. We share the same investment philosophy and values. With his extensive experience and network Peter will be a great resource to assist Invision to find and develop attractive opportunities.”
