Alireza Etemad, Sector Lead

Background

IK Partners has significant experience in the Industrials sector. Our investment strategy focuses on defined subsectors, selected based on a combination of strong growth and fundamentals, as well as market resilience. Within these subsectors, we look for companies that: operate in niche markets protected by entry barriers and proprietary technology; possess attractive expansion opportunities; and experience an increased demand for sustainable practices.

Why We Invest

Companies operating in niche markets offer us the opportunity to execute transformational add-on acquisitions to form leading players of scale. If supported by proprietary technology, there is an opportunity to increase efficiency by digitising supply chains and processes. Finally, where companies are experiencing an increased demand for sustainable practices, there is potential to provide value-added services which contributes to recurring revenue streams.

How We Add Value

We work alongside management teams within this sector to add value in the areas of:

  • Aftermarket / Value-Added Services
  • Add-on Acquisitions
  • Business Model / Positioning
  • Operational Efficiency

Our Track Record

We have a well-established track record of investing in a range of companies across the Industrials. To date, we have invested in 41 companies and deployed €2.8 billion of capital.
