Entrepreneurial Empathic

We are Afinum -
successful for many years and experienced across most industries.

As a German investment firm, we have been shaping succession situations for SMEs for more than 20 years: respectful, strategic and far-sighted.

With the ambition to make good things even better, today we strengthen and develop leading companies for tomorrow.

Our investment approach puts people first, because we believe that people in a company are the most valuable asset.

LIFTKET is a very successful medium-sized company. In 2016 we brought Afinum on board. Today I can say: It was just the right step at the right time.
