SGT German Private Equity generates significant profit
with its private equity investments
Frankfurt/Main, 24 November 2022 – SGT German Private Equity (SGF), a listed private equity asset manager, achieved a very good performance with its private equity investment portfolio in the third quarter of 2022, already recording a value gain of almost 40% or more than half a million EUR since inception on 1 June 2022. The private equity investment portfolio has outperformed the NASDAQ by more than 50% within the same period. With its private equity investment portfolio, SGF co-invests in private equity funds managed by its wholly owned subsidiary SGT Capital Pte. Ltd. (SGTPTE), which to date has completed one private equity transaction, the acquisition of Utimaco, a strongly growing, highly profitable global market leader for high-end cyber security software, co-headquartered in Aachen, Germany and Campbell, California, USA.
SGTPTE aims to generate superior returns by driving the internationalisation of mid-market businesses in combination with more traditional private equity value creation strategies. The above-average initial performance achieved by the SGTPTE funds leads to expect positive impact on its further fundraising.
