Equity participation / Direct investment

We support you as a strong temporary shareholder

Temporary investment in your company

As a fast-growing company, you may come up against financial viability limits. As DZ BANK, we can help you to build on your growth. Through our experts at VR Equitypartner, we take majority or minority stakes in growth companies whose ambitions cannot be realised with the current financing structure. We support you financially and with know-how from 50 years of investment business.

With a direct investment VR Equitypartner becomes your co-partner for a limited period of time. In many cases, the participation in the company takes place via a capital increase. This provides your company with fresh capital with which you can realise your growth plans. 

You always keep the control in your hand.

You benefit from our network.

You know your company best. We deliberately stay out of the daily business. Therefore we accompany you in all strategic matters and professionalise your company. If you wish, we can support you in relevant operational issues with our own experienced experts or with specialists from our network.

As a growing company, you will always benefit from the comprehensive range of products and services offered by the DZ BANK Group - so you can obtain insurance, growth financing or, for example, interest rate hedging from a single source.
