Strategy & Philosophy

Based on our extensive experience in handling special situations and restructurings involving German companies, we have evolved an investment strategy aimed at long-term value creation:


  • Consistent Investment Focus:  Our value creation strategy is clearly focused on fundamentally sound companies that have under-performed for reasons that do not compromise the core strengths of the business, providing scope for extensive and sustainable transformation.
  • Work with Mittelstand Characteristics:  We pursue a partnership approach to investment, combined with in-depth knowledge of the German market.
  • Transformation through Operational and Financial Restructuring:  Based on our extensive national and international operational management and turnaround experience, we seek to create value through performance improvements aimed at optimising both financial and operational management.
  • Optimising Positioning of the Company:  We intend to create stable, efficient, profitable businesses with a manageable debt burden, a capable management team and a demonstrable history of strong cash flows.

In our opinion Hidden Peak Capital’s unparalleled combination of in-house private equity and restructuring expertise enables us to consider highly complex situations which conventional financial investors generally do not pursue.

We are convinced that speed, transaction certainty and absolute discretion are key elements for the successful execution of what are often such highly sensitive situations.
