About Us

SEVEST is a lower mid-market buyout fund with a focus on advanced industrial businesses in DACH. Through our family background and our strong track record as mid-market investors, the ability to deploy operational and financial resources unmatched in our size bracket, and our operator-led active ownership approach, we support our portfolio companies to reach their next level.


SEVEST was founded in 2022 as an independent part of Serafin, an industrial holding with a strong track record in investing own equity in an evergreen structure in European-based SMEs which benefit from an active ownership approach. While SEVEST benefits from being part of a group, it has a clearly distinct investment focus and is independent in its investment decisions.


SEVEST focuses on lower mid-market buy-outs, and partners with market-leading companies in the advanced industrial sectors (differentiated industrials, industrial technology, and related software/services), in DACH.


SEVEST seeks to drive superior returns through its operator-led active ownership approach, deploying a proven operational value creation toolkit, executed by an experienced in-house value creation team.


The SEVEST founders have demonstrated their capacity in the sourcing, execution, value creation and exit of transactions in over 30 investments.
