Extensive track record combined with deep industry knowledge

The highly dynamic and rapidly changing Consumer sector is being challenged by ongoing digitalization and the rise of new and partly disruptive business models. We drill down into sub-sectors that show strong growth potential and/or an increase in consolidation. The majority of our transactions are cross-border – within Europe and beyond – and are executed by an international team of experienced advisors with extensive sector expertise.


For each of the sub-sectors listed below, our team not only tracks valuation levels and related drivers but is also in constant dialogue with key market players across the globe to understand their strategies and growth priorities. This is to best position your business in the market and sell it to the most likely buyers.

  • Homecare
  • E-Commerce
  • Health & Fitness
  • Luxury Goods
  • Retail & Wholesale

Client Stories


The extensive sector knowledge of the Capitalmind Investec team, including the relevant access to potential buyers, and profound experience with succession-related transactions were very valuable for us in this project. As a family-run company in the fourth generation, we have found an excellent strategic succession solution.

Capitalmind Investec’s team, who has been accompanying my strategic considerations for the past years, helped me find the perfect financial partner to structure Samshield’s fast growth. In a challenging market, affected by the evolution of raw material prices, transportation costs and €/$ variations, they were able to perfectly meet my expectations.
