For certain businesses and management teams, having an investor able to take a long-term view is an advantage. This is where family offices can play a valuable role as they are often not constrained by the requirements to invest or divest within time limits defined by the funds they manage rather than the requirements of the business.
Altium’s relationships with family offices across Europe and the Middle East enable us to introduce businesses, management teams and investors to one another where this may be the right answer for all parties.
We understand that family offices have individual investment strategies as well as different decision-making processes.
This, combined with our considerable experience of sale and acquisition processes, whether involving trade, private equity or entrepreneurs, management buy-outs or buy-ins, means that we understand how to advise family offices both when making an investment and, when the time comes, on the appropriate exit strategy, be it a trade sale, buy-out or IPO.
