Our Industries

We are dedicated to offering extensive experience across various industries, including:

The aerospace and defense industry is undergoing far-reaching changes. Reeling from the Covid crisis, they must reinvent themselves to face the challenges of production ramp-up and future planning. Growing security challenges, both domestic and international, are fuelling a need for cutting-edge and high-tech equipment and service providers.

We are particularly active in the following segments:

  • OEM, Systems, and parts manufacturers (air, land, and sea)
  • Equipment distribution
  • Detection systems, equipment, and operators
  • MCO and services to aircraft

The wealth and asset management industry is facing a challenging market environment, cost pressures and increasing regulation, leading them to review their positioning, adapt their business model and growth strategy, and explore new opportunities. Indefi has developed unique expertise in the asset and wealth sector, with a global perspective and knowledge of national markets. Our approach is based on both industry and proprietary data, alongside convictions fueled by targeted expertise, primary research, and immersion in the asset and wealth management ecosystem.

We actively support these players in their organic and inorganic growth:

  • Asset managers
  • IFAs and wealth managers
  • Private asset managers
  • Distributors

B2B Services are a rapidly growing industry, often resilient to economic cycles, and facing the digital revolution that holds both value creation opportunities and disruption risks going forward. We meet these challenges with our expertise across many industry sectors, together with our technology and digital edge to analyze investment opportunities.

We are particularly active in the following segments:

  • Testing Inspection Control
  • Construction-related services
  • Digital agencies
  • IT services
  • HR-related services
  • Outsourcing and BPO

Construction is facing a threefold challenge: the growing search for healthier living, need to play its role in the fight against climate change (energy transition issues), and considerable cost inflation. We leverage our thorough understanding of this industry and its inherent cyclicity to help market players navigate this complex industry, in both residential and non-residential sectors.

We are particularly active in the following segments:

  • Maintenance and renovation services
  • HVAC services
  • Electrical engineering
  • Building materials

The need for quality private education is rapidly growing across all levels, from primary to college and vocational education. In the wake of the Covid crisis and the digital revolution, demands for new formats and contents have risen forcing players to reinvent themselves and opening opportunities for new entrants.

We are particularly active in the following segments:

  • Higher education
  • Work-study programs
  • Vocational training
  • Health education

Healthcare is facing considerable challenges: the soaring need for quality care driven by an aging population, ever-decreasing resources in the face of mounting public debt and the demand for healthier lifestyle constantly requiring healthier foods and supplements.

We are particularly active in the following segments:

  • Healthcare services
  • MedTech
  • Digital heath and healthcare software
  • Consumer health
  • Pharma services
  • Health supplements
  • Sports supplements

As technology and digital capabilities are becoming the cornerstone of companies’ performance and value creation opportunities, strategic recommendations on investment opportunities must increasingly be based on an in-depth understanding of operational skills, maturity, and associated digital/tech KPIs. Our technology and digital practice is based on such principles and we operate uniquely via a differentiated joint venture with the digital transformation consultancy Singulier, which brings to the table unparalleled expertise in digital media, UX, CRM, IT, and data.

We are particularly active in the following segments:

  • Technology services
  • E-commerce
  • B2B Software
  • Media

The transport and logistics industries are growing steadily, driven by new, easier mobility, the e-commerce explosion, soaring international trade, emerging new technologies and disruptive new players. At the same time, they must adapt to more restrictive carbon footprint objectives and address urban congestion and noise. We approach these challenges holistically, via a three-pronged approach: strategy, ESG and digital.

We are particularly active in the following segments:

  • Logistics (including the last mile segment)
  • Land and air shipping
  • Automotive and off-road vehicles
  • Equipment and service providers
  • Transport infrastructure operators

With our specialized knowledge and experience in these industries, we are well-positioned to provide valuable insights and strategic guidance to our clients, helping them navigate the complexities and seize opportunities for growth and success.
