De Eik prefers to invest in unlisted medium-sized companies, in which it takes both majority and minority stakes. The company has a long and rich tradition of joining forces with family-based entrepreneurs and continues to play an active role on the boards of directors of subsidiaries. As a committed shareholder, we're directed by our long-term investment focus in a way that is often multi-generational.
De Eik seeks to partner with reputable general partners with an excellent and proven track record. De Eik favors collaborating with teams that have a profound expertise within a specific domain and/or geography and operate based on the highest ethical principles. De Eik aspires to be a value adding limited partner by opening up its expertise and network to the fund manager.
De Eik builds a dedicated portfolio. We focus on enterprises with strong competitive advantages and robust financial health. We actively monitor them through engagement with management but do not aspire to hold a mandate on the board of directors.
