With a history that goes back to 1985, the team at Doughty Hanson has been active in European private equity for a quarter of a century. During this time we have bought, grown and sold companies through several economic cycles and have maintained a consistent and disciplined investment approach to generate superior performance.
We acquire majority stakes in market leading businesses with enterprise values at the time of acquisition typically in the range of €250 million to €1 billion.
Working alongside management, we help our companies grow into successful international organisations. Many are now either listed on international stock exchanges or have been sold to become divisions of larger global companies.
Our team consists of experienced investment professionals from more than a dozen countries, working across our network of seven European offices. The team is also one of the largest investors in Doughty Hanson’s private equity funds, ensuring our interests are firmly aligned with our investors.
