Private Equity – Opportunities through financing independent of the banks
Only companies that have a strong capital structure can react flexibly in difficult situations and seize emerging opportunities. Expansions with a view to international markets, the development of product ranges, or the introduction of a new innovative product require financing which often banks will not provide. Through direct investment or mezzanine capital we provide new equity capital for our supported business, thus paving the way to achieve objectives that were perhaps previously still a long way off.
Venture Capital – Investment in innovation and growth
As a business and as investors we place trust in the sustainability of the businesses we support. Particularly in the area of venture capital, the use of equity capital is associated with risks. Despite this, we have trust in the project, courage in the investment and confidence in a successful future. For numerous projects, entrepreneurs today receive no bank loans, since the required sum is too high, and the existing collateral assets are too low. As investors, we see our role in promoting innovative projects and ideas, and in contributing through this to the growth and the future sustainability of our economy.

Ruby Hotels & Resorts GmbH
We are supporting the emerging trend of ‘Lean Luxury’ in the travel & hospitality sector by investing in Ruby Hotels & Resorts GmbH. Ruby focuses on high-margin individual guest-centric business, rather than costly extras such as concierge, room service, fitness and wellness or common and meeting rooms, and this focused perspective is what allows Ruby to emphasise quality rather than quantity. The optimally located hotel also houses a trendy bar and showcases designer rooms as luxurious and sophisticated modular spaces. Minimalism is also leveraged to ensure a perfect breakfast is offered – slimmed down but still boasting the best in high-quality organic products, reflecting contemporary nutritional habits.
Franger Investment is a family-owned holding company which helps companies achieve their goals on the back of targeted investments and holdings.
