The Group said that it will “target its investment towards Group companies which are trusted to achieve especially good performance and high growth in business models recognised as having future potential”.

As a result, Otto Group will be concentrating on key e-commerce areas and it also identified Hermes Europe as one of its “focus companies with high investment and growth expectations”.]
