Venture capitalists invest equity in non-listed, medium-sized companies with growth targets. As a rule, Alpine Equity (HUBAG) remains invested for between three and eight years. There is no time or exit pressure compared to some other private equity companies. This is because Hypo Equity Unternehmensbeteiligung AG (HUBAG) is designed as a so-called „evergreen“. This means that, in contrast to other private equity companies, the term is not fixed but unlimited. This option safeguards the interests of all shareholders and reduces dependence on economic cycles.
