Since 1995 we have been demonstrating with INDUS how the small and medium-sized enterprise sector and capital market listings can go hand-in-hand. We combine our shareholders’ capital with successful business models designed for the long term. Through active strategic support we provide hidden champions in the SME sector with a platform on which to develop their businesses autonomously.
We have been successful with INDUS because our companies have been successful in their markets. Our shareholders participate in this success through regular dividends and value appreciation.
What makes investing in INDUS shares attractive
Our shareholders and investors…
…acquire an interest in the German economy’s primary engine of growth: the small and medium-sized enterprise sector.
…invest in a business model that is designed for the long term and is therefore predictable.
…invest in a strategy designed both for healthy earnings and stable value appreciation for the Group as a whole.
You are investing in…
…a diversified portfolio, which is better at offsetting cyclical fluctuations than companies operating in a specific sector.
…internationalization, innovation, and entrepreneurial growth – or, to put it differently, in the main forces driving the small and medium-sized enterprise sector.
