With its 50-year history and over € 2.0 billion Assets under Management, NORD Holding is one of the leading Private Equity Asset Managers in Germany with a focus on direct and fund investments. The direct investments division of NORD Holding focuses on structuring and financing company succession models, acquiring parts of larger groups/subsidiaries as well as on expansion financing of medium-sized companies. In contrast to most other financial investors, who only manage closed-end funds, NORD Holding acts as a so-called "evergreen fund", thereby investing from its own balance sheet with no maturity restrictions. Currently, the fund has interests in more than 15 companies in the DACH region. The fund investments division targets the small-cap segment of the European private equity market through primaries, secondaries and co-investments. NORD Holding has a strong focus on emerging buyout managers, hands-on investment strategies and regularly acts as an anchor investor. The division manages € 1.3 billion and ranks among the top decile fund investment groups in Europe.
