H2 Equity Partners is one of the oldest and most successful mid-market, hands-on investors in North-Western Europe with over 120 platform and buy & build transactions completed since 1991.
We have built an excellent track-record by focusing on structural improvement and growth – not on financial engineering. Fundamentally our strategy can be summarised as the aim to “build better businesses”. And as this takes time, our holding period can be longer than that of traditional leveraged buy-out investors, but ultimately this is reflected in the shareholder value created.
Our experienced team of investment professionals, of which most principals have extensive line management, consulting or CEO experience, are able to discuss with management and shareholders “at their level of knowledge”. As we have been in your position, we know that a spreadsheet is patient, but actual implementation and delivery of plans is difficult. As entrepreneurs with capital we speak the language of management & entrepreneurs.
Over the last 30 years there are few sectors we have not been involved in. In the “portfolio” section of our website your can view our existing portfolio as well as a selection of our historic transactions. This will give you a flavour of the breath and depth of our experience and our geographic coverage; from healthcare to defence, from industrial manufacturing to recruitment and from the east of the Netherlands to the west coast of Ireland! We continue to expand our track-record and experience with every transaction we do.
