Investing in growth sectors
These sectors were chosen for their ability to generate the most value out of our regions.
Since 2016 we have invested in these competencies to leverage and capture these returns.
Life Sciences consists of Biotech & Medtech ventures with a focus on business models that demonstate traction and growth perspectives. The focus is on companies that both drive medical innovation across the value chain and enable these to improve the life of patients whose medical needs are currently unmet.
Smart Living is a trend that involves improved standards in several aspects of day-to-day life, ranging from mixed-use real estate, hospitality, workplaces and the way people are entertained, transported and fed whilst striving for wellness, efficiency, economy and reduction of the carbon footprint.
The Technology sector embodies companies involved in digital business models that demonstate traction and growth perspectives. While the focus is on IT driven technologies, industrial innovative technologies (food, chemistry, …) are not excluded.
In the financial jargon, a club deal refers to a syndicated, collective investment. Such a structure enables investors to finance or acquire stakes in companies beyond their individual capacity. Adepts of club deals can also use this mechanism to increase the number of participations in their portfolio to increase its diversification, once again, beyond their individual financial capacity.
With us, the name TheClubDeal takes up many of the above points and notably the notion of Co-investment; but we attach the greatest importance to the notion of club and interactions between the investor members of our ecosystem. Why “The”? Because the notion of club may be misunderstood and have a dangerous side, which is the “herd instinct” effect. At TheClubDeal, intuition is necessary but strongly backed by strict processes that help to offset that risk.
Our DNA includes the values of intangible capital (human, brand, reputation, ESG) and our analyses are not limited to business plans and balance sheets. Expert advice from knowledgeable members of our investment community is an integral part of our selection process for the nuggets we invest in.
We encourage the development of professional relationships between our members, and we will bring them together about ten times a year to facilitate interactions between them and with the managers of our invested companies.
