Andersch is the leading restructuring consultancy in Germany and part of the international FTI Consulting Group. We are the market and quality leader within restructuring and advise large mid-sized enterprises as well as listed corporations on far-reaching decisions.
What we do
Extraordinary situations call for unconventional solutions. Andersch offers customized advice and support to companies in critical situations. Off-the-shelf concepts fail to deliver on our rigid quality standards.
We are committed to quality, especially in times of transition and crisis. Our teams are drafted together to cover the specific needs of each individual case. These Andersch teams collaborate closely with the client’s management team to design robust concepts based on fundamental analyses and smart solutions.
Project findings consist of carefully tailored custom solutions designed to fit our client’s exact needs. After all, ready-made solutions can only deliver average results. Long-standing experience, specialist insight and our commitment deliver positive results that are impossible to achieve with off-the-shelf approaches.
What sets us apart
We understand figures. Why? Because we are committed to providing our clients with reliable information based on sound figures. And that includes our planning methodology as well as our tried-and-tested system of analysing plans to verify their long-term chances of success.
We are a team. Why? Because even when we are facing major tasks, complex challenges and emotionally exceptional circumstances for our clients, we treat each other with mutual respect. Our working atmosphere is professional and high-performance focussed but never lacks a human touch.
We are a fair employer. Why? Not because we promise the moon, but because we give applicants a realistic insight into our fascinating day-to-day work. And that is made up of exciting projects spanning a wide variety of industries and includes providing all-encompassing advice at senior executive level.
Get in touch with us. We look forward to getting to know you. We’re looking for people who enjoy working with people. Because behind every number, there are people who are a part of creating value. Do you understand figures? Are you a team player?

AUCTUS means not only success, but also diversity: Over the last 19 years a wide range of different industries – from services, healthcare and IT to education, consumer goods, and services and technology – have been involved in a variety of deals, e.g. standalone deals with a large number of acquisitions, consolidation of classic buy-and-build platforms, or organic development of new platforms.
Our success is the result of the excellent cooperation within the AUCTUS team, which currently consists of 30 employees – 23 of them in the investment team, which together has more than 150 years of private equity experience. But not only our portfolio companies are growing – AUCTUS itself is growing as well.
