IDI acquires both majority and minority interests in LBOs and growth capital transactions. As a generalist investor we purchase direct equity interests in French and European small and mid-cap companies. The amount we invest in each transaction ranges from €25 to 50 million, and up to €150 million in the case of a joint investment.

A pioneer in private equity investment for more than 50 years, IDI’s longevity may be attributed to:


Alongside partner and employee shareholders, we share an entrepreneurial adventure leveraging our many strengths to win over entrepreneurs. We are in constant dialogue with management teams, speaking the same language and offering our time, advice and the means to develop their companies and rise to new challenges.

Attentive to the concerns of senior executives, IDI synchronises their interests with its own by allowing management to acquire a stake in the company: our performance is closely tied to the trusted relationships our teams cultivate with our entrepreneurs. Independent and pragmatic, we adapt the duration of our investments to companies’ real value creation cycles and to management plans.

As a rule, we support men and women seeking to step up their companies’ growth, having demonstrated excellence in managing their respective groups. As a partner, we strive to be attentive, benevolent, available, tenacious and bold: it’s easier to surpass your expectations when you know you’re well supported and backed by a strong team.
