H2 Equity Partners is one of the oldest and most successful mid-market, value-add investors in North-Western Europe, with over 200 platform and buy & build transactions completed since 1991.
Our unique approach and hard work are the pillars of H2’s strong track-record. Our results stem from structural improvements and growth – not from financial engineering. Simply put, our goal is to “build better businesses”. And as creating fundamental, lasting improvement takes time, our holding period can be longer than that of traditional leveraged buy-out investors. Ultimately, however, this difference is reflected in the shareholder value created.
Our team of investment professionals, of which most principals have extensive management, consulting and/or CEO experience, brings the ability needed to challenge and support management and shareholders. As entrepreneurs with capital, we speak the language of management and entrepreneurs. We know that a spreadsheet is patient, but implementation and delivery of ambitious plans is far more demanding.
There are few sectors we have not been involved in over the last 28 years. See the “portfolio” section of our website to view our current portfolio as well as a selection of our historic transactions: from healthcare to the defense industry, from industrial manufacturing to recruitment and from the Benelux to the Germany.
