Focus on companies with an enterprise value of €75-500m

Gilde focuses on firms based in the Benelux and DACH regions with an enterprise value of €75-500m, with our sweet spot being €100-250m. We have the capacity to underwrite an equity cheque of up to €160m in a single transaction.

Investing in companies with superior business models

We have a 30+ year track-record of identifying and investing in successful enterprises. Every year we review over 150 investment opportunities; diverse both in terms of geographical location and industry. We target sizable businesses with strong, often leading market positions, growth potential and a predictable positive cash flow.

Partnering with outstanding management teams and ensuring interest alignment

We seek to join forces and cooperate closely with successful entrepreneurs and management teams. Gilde views sharing a strategic vision for the business as equally important as financially incentivizing all key stakeholders.
