Capvis is a Swiss private equity investor with almost 50 employees who pool their international experience in locations such as Zug in Switzerland, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Shanghai, Jersey and Luxembourg. Senior advisors in Milan, London and New York represent the company, which has been voted the best private equity firm in Switzerland many times over by the trade press.

Capvis focuses on medium-sized companies in the Industrial Corridor of Europe (Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Italy and Benelux). Their business is based on longstanding experience in creating local and global market leaders in the industrial, technological and advanced services sectors. Capvis works in close collaboration with strong management teams to develop the potential of the acquired companies and create long-term value.

Capvis carefully selects the companies in which it invests, and endeavours to support their development on a sustained basis. The starting point for their partnership with Tertianum is no different. 

Boris Zoller, Managing Partner at Capvis AG explains "As the Swiss market leader for living, housing and care in old age, Tertianum is a unique healthcare services platform. We look forward to working with management to further strengthen Tertianum and expand its services to include additional full-time residential options and day-care services. We aim to develop Tertianum into an integrated service provider for living, housing and care in old age".
Capvis wählt die Unternehmen, in die sie investiert, mit grosser Sorgfalt aus und verfolgt das Ziel, diese nachhaltig weiterzubringen. Nicht anders präsentiert sich die Ausgangslage für die Zusammenarbeit mit Tertianum. 

„Als Schweizer Markführer für Leben, Wohnen und Pflege im Alter ist Tertianum eine einzigartige Healthcare Services Plattform. Wir freuen uns, Tertianum gemeinsam mit der Geschäftsleitung weiter zu stärken und durch zusätzliche stationäre und ambulante Dienstleistungen auszubauen.
