Private Equity and M&A

We unlock deeply embedded value creation opportunities.


Market Screening

We connect investors and investment opportunities. We help our clients to identify potential acquisition targets in public as well as private markets and or bring them in contact with relevant decision-makers.

PE Portfolio Support

Post-transaction, we continue working alongside our clients in the value-creation phase by supporting our clients‘ portfolio companies with the full breadth of services of Dr. Borer Consulting (M&A, Business Development and Public Affairs).

Funding and Co-Investment

Dr. Borer Consulting maintains excellent relationships with all major lenders in Switzerland and has introduced its clients for financing tranches of debt in the past. We have also identified and introduced co-investors to certain deals of our clients

Private Equity Diplomacy

During a transaction, it is crucial that all parties have the same understanding of the situation and clarity in their messaging. Our cross-cultural negotiation and mediation expertise can support the deal team to generate goodwill and align expectations with relevant decision-makers.

Stakeholder Management

In some cases, stakeholders other than the sellers can have an impact on the success potential of an investment-case. It is important to identify these stakeholders, their impacts on the deal, and to develop the right approach to positively shape the perception of the project.
