One of Cowen’s key success factors is the clear industry focus. We have extensive operational experience, in-depth sector knowledge and long-standing relationships within each of our focus sectors.


The commercial relevance of the automotive & diversified industrial sector, combined with its long and complex supply chain, has always been a vital part of our economic environment. We serve every area of the sector that has organized industrial production, value-added distribution and/or development structures.


This sector primarily includes IT companies that provide hardware and software as well as telecommunication companies and ISPs, media companies, portal operators and classic publishers. We put a particular emphasis on companies whose digital environments overlap with our five focus sectors.
