Consumer & Retail

Numerous years of industry and transaction expertise consequently carry an in-depth understanding of the dynamics of our individual market segments, consumer food (incl. beverage, meat, dairy products, confectionary, baked goods) and consumer non-food (incl. clothing, shoes, household goods, furniture, DIY, drugstore products) as well as of both on- and off-trade distribution within those industries. Our industry spectrum is rounded off by paper & packaging, gastronomy & leisure and consumer goods logistics.

Our small- and medium-sized customers are faced with a growing consolidation trend in an international competitive environment. The digitalisation of the entire value chain along with the growing importance of e-commerce activities are imposing further challenges for all of our clients. Other challenges, for instance, comprise the scale reconciliation of existing business models in terms of their risk/reward profiles as well as potential succession solutions.

A track record encompassing more than 250 successful advisory and financing transactions serves to demonstrate the expertise of the Consumer & Retail industry team and the trustful relationship we enjoy with our customers.
