MPEP provides proven access to the world‘s best and most sought-after private equity funds. These managers have the passion and expertise coupled with a clear vision of how they can create value together with their target companies. A selection of existing relationships with significantly oversubscribed funds is displayed below.



Private equity generally describes investments in privately held companies. The asset class has a relatively low correlation to other asset classes while generating long-term excess returns, which makes private equity so attractive for the world’s most renowned institutional investors. We have a preference for managers investing in “mature” mid-market companies in established economies. These companies, we perceive as being best positioned to offer the potential for superior risk-adjusted returns for the following reasons:

  • Balanced: Favorable ratio of private equity capital to potential target companies
  • Conservative: Low entry multiples and prudent leverage add to attractive risk-reward profile
  • Upside: Companies typically offer the full spectrum of value creation initiatives
  • Flexible: Multiple exit routes due to large universe of strategic and financial buyers

We are enthusiastic about our partners and we are eager to understand organisations and their people. That is why our selection is not purely based on facts and figures. It is also based on long-lasting personal relationships, which are crucial for a reliable and successful partnership. Nevertheless, a rigorous in-depth due diligence is essential and a mandatory duty for every fund investment. Our selection principles are the following:

  • We target market leaders in the entry, enhancement or exit phases of investments.
  • We prefer managers with a differentiated strategy to source and win deals.
  • We are biased towards managers who create strategically relevant assets.
  • We seek managers with a strong, proven and replicable track record across cycles.
  • We consciously build portfolios of managers with a blend of investment styles.
  • We seek to partner with established and experienced managers.

Our values underline what inspires and drives us and what significance we ascribe to our relationships with our clients, partners and colleagues.

We will maintain the highest standards of customer service at all times

We will be fair and respectful in our dealing with all parties

We will strive to create a positive working environment at all times

We will demonstrate a relentless dedication to improvement

We believe that taking into consideration of sustainability aspects helps to drive long-term value creation for our clients, employees and the society at large. The long-term nature and ownership model of the private equity asset class essentially supports this approach.

MPEP is a signatory of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI).

MPEP has been considering sustainability risks (ESG), in particular sector-specific risks, in its investment decision taking already for many years. Each fund investment opportunity is evaluated from an ESG perspective. The resulting ESG evaluation is an integral part in our decision-making process and disclosed to the Investment Committee. ESG is accordingly integrated into our internal policies.

MPEP’s remuneration policy is consistent with the integration of sustainability risks. Incentives are not provided that are expected to remain unaffected by the negative impact of any sustainability risks on long-term performance.

MPEP funds are invested predominantly indirectly, i.e. through its target funds, in various portfolio companies around the world. Many of these portfolio companies are currently not subject to comparable transparency obligations as laid down in Regulation (EU) 2019/2088. This currently increases the difficulty in assessing the adverse impacts of investment decisions on the sustainability factors according to Article 4(1) of the Regulation (EU) 2019/2088. To this end, MPEP currently does not consider adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors within the meaning of the Article 4(1) of the Regulation (EU) 2019/2088.
