Through a variety of products the SwanCap team works to meet the dynamic needs of its sophisticated investor base. The product range includes both Closed End Funds (e.g. SWAN I – IV) as well as customized Managed Accounts.

Investment Approach:

Our investment approach includes three investment strategies (“integrated investment strategy”):

  • Primary Private Equity Fund Investments (focus on Europe and North America)
  • Direct Private Equity Secondary Investments
  • Direct Private Equity Co-Investments

Distinct access to attractive and mostly restricted investment opportunities in the buyout segment as well as deep and institutionalized due dilligence process are pivotal to SwanCap's investment approach.

We believe to be one of the most experienced private equity investors in Germany and Europe today with a successful investment history, having demonstrated its ability to source and select top-tier investment opportunities across various economic cycles. With SwanCap´s comprehensive team experience, deep understanding of the market, deeply entrenched networks and truly embedded risk culture, the team has developed a competitive advantage which is difficult to replicate and offers a strong value proposition for our clients.

Investment Philosophy:

Our investment philosophy is based on capital preservation and protection as well as a value-oriented investor mindset and “asset conviction”. We focus on high quality assets and proactively source our investment opportunities and apply a rigorous and institutionalised due diligence and selection process.

SwanCap integrates environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria into the whole investment process, from due diligence to investment decision, through holding period and exit and is a signatory to UNPRI.
