Adveq was founded in 1997 in Switzerland, as an independent private equity asset management company. The company has since grown organically (no mergers or acquisitions) and today employs over 110 professionals worldwide and manages approximately USD 7 billion for international institutional investors through funds and mandates.
Adveq invests globally in private equity through a combination of primaries, secondaries and, direct/co-investments. Adveq is one of the leading providers of funds and mandate solutions worldwide, judged by net performance over the last 10 years. This is the result of an investment approach that, since inception, has focused on fundamental value creation in portfolio companies through a number of investment strategies. Adveq is also characterized by a highly disciplined investment process, with “look-through” to the individual underlying portfolio companies and is distinguished by industry-leading analysis and governance components.
Since inception Adveq’s investors and mandate clients have been primarily institutional investors, including pension funds and insurance companies. Adveq’s investors are long-term investors who invest with Adveq for many years and with whom Adveq has formed a close and trusting partnership.
