Company Description

Aravis Ventures is a private equity firm that invests in renewable energy and life sciences sector.

Aravis is the first independent Swiss on-shore private equity house, an established investor in the renewable energy and life science spaces. We are a 'hands-on' investor taking leading positions and understanding the balance between finance, commercial assets and people. With this distinct and crafted approach, we are serving over 30 leading investors including corporates, pension funds, government funds, insurance companies and family offices. Currently actively managing more than a quarter of a billion Swiss francs, we have a cumulative history of investments in over 100 companies. These have resulted in several noticeable exits including the divestment of several renewable energy companies and a number of life science reverse take-overs, listings and trade sales. Our many years of experience in the Swiss fund industry have enabled us to establish a platform with a comprehensive offering of investment, accounting, regulatory and reporting expertise. Located in Zurich, Aravis was founded in 2001.
