Where we invest?

Clear principles and discipline paired with great flexibility

  • Funds managed by Castik Capital focus on making investments in high-quality and growing businesses, which are headquartered in Europe and led by strong management teams or founders.
  • We work with the management teams on specific value creation plans that allow the business to achieve an improved growth trajectory – either through expansion to new markets, add-on M&A, or investments to the core business, e.g. digitization or new products/technology.
  • Furthermore, Castik Funds are very flexible when it comes to taking majority or minority positions and whether the entity is privately owned or stock exchange listed.
  • This flexibility helps to offer owners and managers the most suitable proposition for their business.
