Mature assets

 

Small to mid-market transactions

 

Privileged access to information

Secondary investments

The secondary investment strategy focuses on small to mid-market transactions, a less competitive market segment where the team enjoys significant competitive advantages due to synergies with its primary activity.

 

ODDO BHF Private Equity purchases mature assets consisting mainly of European mid-market buyouts. Maturity allows for not only better risk control but also a quick return on investment.

 

ODDO BHF Private Equity also has the expertise to work on more complex transactions, usually known as “non-traditional”, in order to diversify its portfolio and seek higher returns.

 

To this end, ODDO BHF Private Equity benefits from a privileged network of relationships with both buyers and sellers, thus generating an abundant and high-quality deal flow. The primary activity gives the team extensive access to information, fast and accurate analysis of underlying assets, as well as optimized execution.
