Our approach is based on three main pillars:

Value creation

Holland Capital focuses on creating significant value within the companies in which we invest. As an active shareholder, we are closely involved with the development and growth of the company. In collaboration with the company’s management, we draw up plans for strategic development and operational improvements. The joint implementation and execution of these plans and their adjustment is always done with the aim of value growth in mind.

Partnerships

We build long-term relationships with entrepreneurs and the managers of the businesses which we invest in. Holland Capital speaks the language of entrepreneurs and is a valued partner. By being transparent about objectives and expectations, we strive to align our objectives and those of the company’s management. These partnerships are based on mutual trust and respect and focus on the joint development of a successful business.

Network & experience

At Holland Capital, we find it essential to be familiar with the market in which the company operates. We develop a clear and thorough insight into the developments within the market so that we can act as a true sparring partner and assist the management team in the decision-making process. From 1981 onwards, we have built up a broad network that largely consists of people with extensive business experience in specific sectors, who have experienced the diverse challenges of a growing company.
