evolutiq is a Cologne-based entrepreneurial investment manager. We create value for our clients, our employees, society, and ourselves by taking an integrated approach towards risk, return, and sustainability.
We reinvest this value into the future growth of evolutiq as well as philanthropic activities and so aspire to make a lasting contribution to business and society.
We strive to create value in the long-term by learning, creating, growing and investing in relationships, organizations and spaces that have a positive impact. In this spirit, we explicitly refrain from defining a fixed investment horizon. At the same time, we challenge ourselves on the future value creation potential of our portfolio assets and our capability to capture this potential.
We believe in interest alignment as a prerequisite for learning, collaborating and building with success. Therefore, we co-invest with our partners (min. 5% of invested capital – at least twice the industry standard) and invite our management and employees to do so as well. Further, we link our management’s compensation to a set of clearly defined measures that capture the long-term value creation.
We aspire to account for all factors that determine the impact our investments have on the communities our clients, our portfolio assets, our employees and we ourselves operate in. Along these lines, we currently develop performance metrics that account for the United Nation’s SDGs and that we will use in evaluating future investment opportunities and portfolio assets’ performance.
