Winch Capital 3 and Winch Capital 4 have generated an average multiple of 3.3x and include European champions such as Skill & You, Infra Group, HR Path, NetCo, Scalian, and Exclusive Group.

With 4 investments already completed in France and in Belgium, and a 5th deal pending,

  • ERI, a specialised player in multi-technical building and infrastructure services (Apr-2022);
  • Groupe Résonance Imagerie, a network of medical imaging centres (Jun-2022);
  • Senstronic, a global supplier of high-performance detection solutions (Sep-2022); and
  • Pauwels Consulting, a consulting firm specialised in Life Sciences, software development and engineering (Jun-2023).   

Alongside highly invested entrepreneurs and managers, Andera MidCap carries out minority and majority investments in established and growing European businesses to help them change scale with equity tickets comprised between €30 and €100 million. Andera Partners’ goal in its capacity as a responsible investor is to support portfolio companies in generating sustainable growth by taking into account environmental and social issues. In this regard, Andera MidCap 5 qualifies as an Article 8 fund under SFDR, proactively promoting environmental and social responsibility in its investment strategy.

The team invests in France and across Europe, notably in Belgium (where it opened its Antwerp office in 2019) and Italy, where Andera Partners recently opened an office in Milan, thereby extending the team’s commitment to the country after ten years of continued investment activity.

Andera MidCap 5 stands out as the largest fundraising ever achieved by the Andera Partners and demonstrates renewed confidence from investors in the firm and its 6 investment strategies.

TENTATIVE DE FRAUDE : À LIRE ATTENTIVEMENT
ATTEMPTED FRAUD: READ IT CAREFULLY (English below)

ANDERA PARTNERS attire votre attention sur les tentatives de fraudes avec usurpation d’identité qui sévissent actuellement. Les techniques de phishing (ou hameçonnage) évoluent en permanence et sont de plus en plus sophistiquées.

Ces pratiques frauduleuses qui touchent ANDERA PARTNERS, invitent les particuliers à investir dans des comptes à terme et autres produits d’épargne fictifs sous l’identité d’ ANDERA PARTNERS (Andera Co-Invest notamment), et celles de ses collaborateurs et membres des organes de direction, via une adresse fictive et des appels téléphoniques.

Nous vous invitons à la plus grande vigilance si vous receviez ce type de sollicitations. ANDERA PARTNERS ne propose pas de compte à terme et n’a recours à aucun démarchage auprès du public, ni par téléphone ni par courriel.

Les fraudeurs ne manquent pas d'imagination pour piéger leurs victimes. Leurs actions visent à récupérer à leur insu et de manière indue des données financières, en incitant leurs victimes à réaliser des transactions dématérialisées.
En cas de doute, pour vous protéger et protéger ANDERA PARTNERS, nous vous invitons à :

*   Vous méfier des demandes inattendues, même si elles semblent provenir de dirigeants ou membre d’organes de direction d’ANDERA PARTNERS ;

*   Vérifier l’adresse de l’expéditeur. Les adresses électroniques des collaborateurs d’ANDERA PARTNERS utilisent un seul et même format : initialeduprénom.nom@anderapartners.com. Les adresses globales sont ainsi libellées : nomduservice@anderapartners.com ;

*   Ne jamais cliquer sur un lien vous demandant de partager des informations sensibles et ne jamais répondre à des demandes financières en ligne ;

*   Signaler tout message suspect qui vous demande une action immédiate.

La priorité d'ANDERA PARTNERS est de protéger ses clients et ses activités contre la fraude.

ANDERA PARTNERS would like to draw your attention to fraud attempts involving identity theft that are currently rife. Phishing techniques are constantly evolving and becoming increasingly sophisticated.

These fraudulent practices, which affect ANDERA PARTNERS, invite individuals to invest in term accounts and other fictitious savings products under the identity of ANDERA PARTNERS (Andera Co-Invest in particular), and those of its employees and members of the management company, via a fictitious address and telephone calls.

Please be extremely vigilant if you receive this type of solicitation. ANDERA PARTNERS does not offer term accounts and does not canvass the public by telephone or e-mail.

Fraudsters do not lack imagination to trap their victims. Their actions are aimed at unknowingly and improperly recovering financial data, by encouraging their victims to carry out dematerialised transactions.

* Be wary of unexpected requests, even if they appear to come from ANDERA PARTNERS managers or members of management bodies;
