The company can deliver unparalleled performance in terms of awareness generation, user engagement and performance and offers GDPR-compliant tracking and analytics solutions through fusedeck.

Saturnus is a partner-owned private equity firm focusing on investments in mid-market companies in Germany and Switzerland.

It offers investors the chance to invest alongside them in niche opportunities throughout direct private equity and uncorrelated strategies.
