ECM Equity Capital Management GmbH

ECM is an independently owned private equity firm based in Frankfurt with a 20+ year history as one of the earliest players active in the DACH market for small cap buyouts. The firm has maintained this clear investment focus and has built a strong reputation as the partner of choice for entrepreneurs and management teams, typically acting in ownership succession or corporate divestiture situations. ECM has raised four institutionally backed funds to date with total equity commitments of EUR 685m. These funds have made over 35 investments to date. ECM’s acquisition targets are profitable growth companies with revenues of approx. EUR 10-250 million. ECM does not have a sector focus but has built up significant experience and knowledge in Industrials, Healthcare, Business Services, Consumer (Food in particular) and Software. The ECM team actively works with the management teams of its companies to drive value during the ownership phase of its funds, including through add-on and buy-and-build strategies. ECM is currently investing its fourth fund with commitments of EUR 230m.
