A story of entrepreneurs

HLD is an investment group founded in 2010 by three passionate entrepreneurs: Jean-Philippe Hecketsweiler, Jean-Bernard Lafonta and Philippe Donnet.

Specialising in private equity, HLD invests in the capital of European companies in all business sectors. By not imposing a term on our investments, we can support entrepreneurs with a strategy for growth.

Our values

Our long-term investment horizon means we are not dependent on economic cycles and can envisage strategic acquisitions or projects for our companies. Nor are we restricted by exit deadlines, which is a very significant competitive advantage for the companies in which we invest.

HLD becomes the partner, the advisor, who supports his “nuggets” without time limits.
