UNDERSTANDING

Market focus
Private equity generally describes investments in privately held companies. The asset class has a relatively low correlation to other asset classes while generating long-term excess returns, which makes private equity so attractive for the world’s most renowned institutional investors. We have a preference for managers investing in “mature” mid-market companies in established economies. These companies, we perceive as being best positioned to offer the potential for superior risk-adjusted returns for the following reasons:

  • Lower risk: “mature” companies within the buyout segment generally generate significant revenues.
  • Higher potential: mid-market companies have higher potential for rapid growth (establishment of int. standards, expansion, acquisitions, digitalisation)
  • Lower entry prices: investments within the mid-market segment are less intermediated and therefore face less price competition than mega-buyout deals
  • Stability: established regions offer a stable economical and political framework and thus are the basis for sustainable long-term performance and low volatility.

Manager selection
We are enthusiastic about our partners and we are eager to understand organisations and their people. That is why our selection is not purely based on facts & figures. It is also based on long-lasting personal relationships, which are crucial for a reliable and successful partnership. Nevertheless, a rigorous in-depth due diligence is essential and a mandatory duty for every fund investment. Our selection principles are the following:

  • We target market leaders in the entry, enhancement or exit phases of investments.
  • We prefer managers with a differentiated strategy to source and win deals.
  • We are biased towards managers who create strategically relevant assets.
  • We seek managers with a strong, proven and replicable track record across cycles.
  • We consciously build portfolios of managers with a blend of investment styles.

Our values underline what inspires and drives us and what significance we ascribe to our relationships with our clients, partners and colleagues.


We will maintain the highest standards of customer service at all times

We will be fair and respectful in our dealing with all parties

We will strive to create a positive working environment at all times

We will demonstrate a relentless dedication to improvement

We believe that responsible investing helps to drive long-term value creation for our clients, employees and the society at large. The long-term nature and ownership model of the private equity asset class essentially supports responsible investing. This is why we are convinced that responsible investing can reduce risk while increasing performance potential.

At MPEP, our approach is based on the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI). Through a tailored approach we integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria as an integral part in our investment process.

Pre-investment
Each fund investment opportunity is evaluated from an ESG perspective. The resulting ESG rating is an integral factor in our decision-making process and disclosed to the Investment Committee. A bad rating can cause the refusal of a fund manager.

Post-investment
We monitor and discuss potential ESG topics with fund managers during portfolio updates and advisory board meetings to assure an ongoing ESG focus for existing or potential new investments during the lifetime of a fund.

“Our mission is, to build world-class private equity portfolios for our investors, providing meaningful access to the best fund managers globally.”
