Investments Strategy

YCP Group offers capital to small-to-mid-sized and start-up companies that possess attractive products and services but do not have the necessary resources to realize their growth potential.

Most private equity funds and investment firms tend to avoid investing into start-ups and small companies because the return on investment is too small and there are risks associated with succession. However, because YCP invests from its own balance sheet and is able to send in its own management team, we are able to provide unique solutions to realize growth after investment.

In principal, YCP engages in principal investments. Therefore, we are no pressured by external investors to liquidate our portfolio companies within a certain time frame. This allows us to implement actions to realize long-term and sustainable growth of our portfolio companies. We invest into a variety of companies, ranging from well-established firms to start-ups.
