A Montagu business

  • Leading provider of mission-critical SaaS software in markets with attractive dynamics
  • Strong R&D capabilities
  • Run by a strong management team with track record of consistent organic growth and a high pace of acquisitions

Expanding geographical reach

As a minority investor since 2010, Montagu supported Visma’s impressive growth journey, including a successful transition to SaaS products and an active consolidation strategy.

We continued to support Visma’s management team as they created further value through M&A, the development of Visma’s technology offerings, and international expansion.

For instance, the acquisition of Raet in 2018 significantly expanded Visma’s footprint in the Netherlands, providing a strong platform for further growth in the Benelux region.

We exited Visma fully in 2020 to a consortium of new and existing investors.
