Through our network of partners, within and beyond the Catella Group as well as through our clients, we are also able to participate in business opportunities other than property, including private equity and lending.
Common to these investments is that they are less liquid than listed holdings. Accordingly, you must have a long investment horizon, which in return creates conditions for a higher yield over time.
We thoroughly and systematically evaluate the business ideas that come through our network. Obviously we only proceed with business ideas when we are able to independently assess risks and opportunities. The wishes of our clients in terms of investment type are also an important part of the process.
The network of entrepreneurs among our investment clients includes people who are just starting out as business owners and those who have completed their journeys and sold their businesses. This leads to a range of investment needs with, for example, people who have sold their businesses, requiring more comprehensive and broader management services that include investments in unlisted assets.
Entrepreneurs who are still running their businesses often look to us for help with raising capital. On the strength of Catella’s broad offering, profound expertise and selected partners, we have the capacity to meet these needs. In other words, the financing needs of one client can provide an investment opportunity for other clients in our network.
