German Multi Family Office HQ Equita raises new fund

HQ Equita V fundraising recently reported about the acquisiton of the German software distributor Ebertlang by HQ Equita, a multi family office backed by the Quandt family. This deal was already realized with money from the fifth fund, HQ Equita V, that was set up recently. With the latest fundraising, HQ Equita strengthens its position as relevant Private Equity investor in Germany.

Focus on small- and medium-sized companies

As before, HQ Equita will also use the latest fund in order to deploy capital in SMEs in the German-speaking market. Within the last decades, the family office was able to gain valuable experiences in this segment and generate sustainable growth. The Private Equity investor made a conscious choice to remain in the mid-cap market and invest in enterprises with revenues between 20m EUR and 150m EUR. Targeting so-called hidden champions in Germany, Switzerland and Austria is a typical approach of family offices in this area and makes HQ Equita a prime example as MFO.

Strategic developments and the future of HQ Equita

Besides the latest fundraising, HQ Equita is also busy with fostering the generational change of the investment team. In the last weeks some changes of the key personnel were announced and observers expect further shifts in the next months. By the generational management change, long-term stability and continuity should be secured, as the multi family office announced most recently.
