What keywords spring to mind when you consider responsible investment strategies? We would say: long-term thinking, small and mid-sized European private companies, majority or significant minority positions, and - mostly - understanding their business.
All Alcopa’s investments are in companies close to its historical competence of international distribution. The goal is to act as a long-term industrial partner for the companies it invests in. This is why we don’t think in terms of predefined investment horizon. To ensure alignment and long-term success, Alcopa favors co-investment with the management.
