Deutsche Beteiligungs AG is a listed private equity company. We initiate closed-end private equity funds – DBAG funds – which enable institutional investors to invest in the equity or equity-like instruments of unlisted companies. DBAG advises or manages these funds. That means DBAG identifies, analyses and structures investment opportunities. We negotiate investment agreements, support the portfolio companies during the time of our investment and shape the disinvestment process. Employing our proprietary capital, we co-invest alongside these DBAG funds. A share in DBAG thereby creates access to a portfolio of unlisted companies and, at the same time, to a successful fund investment services business.
Our focus is on German Mittelstand companies. These mid-market businesses are the backbone of the German economy. We feel committed to them. Their business models and markets have been the focus of our work for decades.
Our special focus, moreover, is on companies operating in industrial sectors that are particularly strong on an international comparison. (Equity) capital from the DBAG funds and DBAG's experience and expertise support the portfolio companies in implementing their sustainable, value-creating strategies. Our hands-on investment approach has made us a sought-after investment partner. Since DBAG was established more than 50 years ago, we have provided equity capital to more than 300 companies together with the DBAG funds. Currently, DBAG holds more than 20 portfolio companies. Assets under advisement total some 1.8 billion euros.
We have achieved superior performance over many years - for our portfolio companies, the investors in DBAG funds, and our shareholders. DBAG shares have been traded on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange since 1985. Our shares are listed in the Prime Standard, the market segment with the highest transparency level.
