Services to investors in privately held companies
Deminor helps investors in non-listed companies and privately held listed companies to manage their minority stakes.

Services to institutional investors
Deminor offers focused corporate governance services to institutional investors, helping them to better understand the governance structure of the companies in which they invest and, whenever there are contentious issues, to actively engage with portfolio companies in order to obtain improvements. Engagements can be done on a tailor-made basis or through the Governance Platform.
Deminor also helps institutional investors to recover losses resulting from corporate wrongdoing, misrepresentation or fraud, both in Europe and the United States. Deminor's services are fully comprehensive and allow institutional investors to fully outsource their litigation management and fulfil their fiduciary duty while focusing on their investment activity.
Damage recovery for private investors
Deminor brings together large groups of private investors and set up collective actions. Deminor has successfully defended large groups of private investors in various high-profile European securities actions.
Focused asset management for private and institutional investors
Deminor offers investors the unique opportunity to benefit from value creation resulting from governance change through the Deminor Active Governance Fund (DAGF). DAGF invests in undervalued listed companies with governance weaknesses with the aim of unlocking value through governance change.
