Investment approach

We invest in mid-sized unlisted companies in the Nordic countries. We select interesting growth stories, unique products, potential leading brands and passionate entrepreneurs for further development. We are a generalist investor – the business’s prospects to grow into a best in class company is the defining factor.

Building Nordic success stories

What do the world’s leading sauna heater manufacturer Harvia and producer of technical laminates and protective packaging materials Walki have in common?

Nordic roots combined with an international ambition is reflected in the growth stories of our portfolio companies beyond our holding period. Our team has built Nordic success stories for more than 28 years.
