Founded in 1756, Franz Haniel & Cie. GmbH ("Haniel") is a family-owned investment company based in Duisburg. As a leading purpose-driven investor our goal is to create value for generations. Our "enkelfähig" approach involves a strong focus on performance as well as the ambition to support a future worth living. Our investment strategy focuses on the the three pillars  "People. Planet. Progress,".Our portfolio companies are run and developed as independent entities.

The investment team is responsible for and manages all direct investment activities (incl. venture capital investments) and the portfolio companies throughout their lifecycle from acquisition to exit.

In 2021, we acquired two new platforms, BauWatch in April and KMK Kinderzimmer in August, and carried out 11 bolt-on acquisitions. In addition, we exited ELG to Aperam (December). Further additions to the portfolio are planned in 2022, for which we have funds in excess of €1 billion available.
