HQ Equita has its origins in the Harald Quandt family tradition
of hands-on investments in small and mid-sized enterprises in German-speaking regions.
Thanks to its outstanding network, HQ Equita operates as an autonomous and independent direct investment company. Since its inception in 1992, the company has acquired a total of ca. 1 billion euros in capital commitments and has invested in over 30 enterprises.
The participation of management in its company – for instance via a management buy-out or a management buy-in – is a key contributor to HQ Equita’s success.
HQ Equita is one of the most established providers of equity capital in German-speaking regions. It combines more than 125 years of experience in the field of private equity. The leadership team has been working together for approximately ten years.
HQ Equita currently has direct investments in four companies. Investors include institutions, family offices, foundations and trusts as well as notable entrepreneurial families – including the Harald Quandt family.
