Deutsche Beteiligungs AG has been publicly listed since 1985. It was one of the first companies admitted to the Prime Standard of the Deutsche Börse.

Access to the asset class of private equity is typically limited to investors in closed-end private equity funds. In addition to investing a substantial minimum amount, it requires committing capital for ten years or more. DBAG shares provide a further opportunity for investing in the attractive asset class of private equity – without a minimum investment and, since the shares can be traded on a daily basis, without tying up capital for an extended period of time. Our shareholders participate twofold: in the earnings we generate as an advisor to DBAG funds and in the value growth of our portfolio companies, which are not listed themselves.

Distribution policy

DBAG’s distribution policy aims to ensure that shareholders participate in the financial surpluses of a financial year in the form of stable dividends of at least EUR 1.00 per dividend-entitled share. In addition, the Company plans to consider share repurchases on a more regular basis, as a flexible option enabling shareholders to achieve additional participation in the Company's positive development. This is intended to reflect the long-term orientation of DBAG's business model in its distribution policy.
