The HANNOVER Finanz Group, founded in 1979, has more than 40 years of experience as an equity capital partner for medium-sized enterprises. The private equity house based in Hanover and with an office in Vienna was one of the first venture capitalists in Germany and the German-speaking region. Well-known companies such as Fielmann, Rossmann, AIXTRON, and the Lück Group have achieved their growth with equity capital from HANNOVER Finanz and have taken advantage of the entrepreneurial support provided. The long-term investments in medium-sized companies are currently based on five active Evergreen funds with unlimited maturity dates. The investors are mainly insurance companies or professional pension funds. HANNOVER Finanz's commitments range from traditional industries to commerce and new technologies. Since its foundation, the equity capital partner for medium-sized companies has completed over 250 projects and invested over two billion euros. The reasons for involvement are mainly to finance growth and corporate succession in sound medium-sized businesses with annual sales of at least 20 million euros. The HANNOVER Finanz Group is one of the few private equity houses in Germany to take on the minority as well as majority shareholdings. The portfolio currently comprises 35 companies.
