Our activities

In addition to managing a diversified private equity fund folio, we also invest directly in high-performing companies at key moments in their existence: new growth phase (external and/or organic), capital reorganisation, succession with the management team in place (buy-out), with a new owner (buy-in),with leverage effect.

We make sure that their projects are financed in the best possible conditions while maintaining their directors' freedom to act.
Our financial support can take different forms:

WB_Cam_PE_fin_support_1_en

WB_Cam_PE_fin_support_2_en

Much more than an investor, we want to be a true partner of the companies we support. Through our representation on the board of directors, they benefit from financial and strategic advice so that they can implement their development plans (buy-and-build) internally and externally, without interference in everyday management.

Our criteria
  • Without neglecting large companies, BNP Paribas Fortis Private Equity is currently focussing on SMEs. What's more, young, innovative companies can indirectly benefit from our support via our active role in university spin-off funds investing in innovative start-ups (scale-ups).
  • The investment size ranges from EUR 1 to 50 million (‘sweet spot’ between EUR 3 and 25 million) and the targeted investment horizon is generally from 5 to 7 years. Nevertheless, our direct investments can support longer term growth projects.
  • We focus on companies having demonstrated a profit-making capacity and located in Belgium.
  • Irrespective of our quantitative criteria, we pay particular attention to the human factor and want to establish a close relationship with directors, based on trust.
