derigo | Private equity

Private equity investments have an important part to play in financing innovation and growth, especially that of SMEs. Such private equity investments are based not only on a company’s net asset value, but also on its value creation factors.

When it comes to developing investment opportunities in private equity, derigo employees can draw on their expertise gained from BVT working closely with its expert partner of many years’ standing, DB Private Equity. The focus here is on the private equity secondary market, where investments are commonly known as ‘secondaries’.


Private equity focus:

  • Buyout funds
  • Private equity secondaries

In investing in private equity funds, institutional and wealthy private investors usually provide investment capital which the funds then invest in promising companies. If these fund units are then sold further down the line, this happens on what’s called the secondary market – and they are called secondaries. They are especially attractive for investors, as they tend to already have a high level of investment and, in combination with their reduced remaining terms and the potential for price discounts when being bought, they have a much more favourable risk–return profile than investments in new target funds.
