Invision, a leading European private equity firm, is pleased to announce the successful fund raising of the new Invision VII fund, with a capital commitment totalling EUR 550m. With Invision VII, the 25-year success story continues. The focus remains on succession investments in mid-sized companies headquartered in the DACH region.
The new fund was oversubscribed and alongside existing long-term investors, was able to secure a number of new high-profile ones. The investor-base includes Swiss, German, and other international investors – predominantly investors with a longer-term horizon including insurance companies, pension funds, banks, and family offices. In addition, numerous entrepreneurs, and founders of companies into which Invision invested over the last decades, also form part of our investor group. This underpins our close cooperation and evidences the trustworthy relationship we forge with the founders of our portfolio companies. Quest Fund Placement acted as sole placement adviser for Invision.
Frank Becker, Managing Partner of Invision: “We are delighted with the successful fundraising of Invision VII. On behalf of the entire Invision team, I would like to sincerely thank our investors, the management teams and employees of our portfolio companies as well as our business partners for their trust and support.”
With Careanesth, a leading tech-enabled staffing-agency for the healthcare industry, the new fund already made its first investment. The objective is to complete around 12 additional investments over the coming years. The Invision team in Switzerland and Germany is very experienced and highly motivated to enter new partnerships and transactions with attractive companies. The focus continues to be majority shareholdings in mid-sized companies which have revenues of EUR 30 – 200m. Invision is committed to a sustainable investment approach and has integrated ESG into all aspects of its decision making and management of its portfolio companies.
With Invision VII, we will continue to pursue our proven and successful investment model. We aim to share our experience from numerous industries, our expertise as reliable owners as well as our extensive network with all our partners and portfolio companies. Our approach includes tailor-made succession plans as well as appropriate financing, coupled with support to allow companies to grow, digitalise, internationalise, and complete buy and build strategies.
Since its foundation in 1997, Invision has developed into a leading private equity firm, focused on succession situations and growth capital for mid-sized companies in Europe. Invision has invested over EUR 1 billion equity in over 60 companies and has enabled sustained value creation. Invision regards itself as a partner to company founders and management teams.
