Ownership Strategy

Nordic Capital invests in the most attractive sectors in Northern Europe and North America, offering partnership, deep sector understanding, capital and long experience to drive sustainable growth.

How do we support our portfolio companies?

We do this by partnering closely with founders and management teams to build strong companies and trusted partnerships. By focusing on driving accelerated growth and value creation from genuine business transformation, we can power-boost a joint plan to make great companies even better.

We bring structure, capital, international sector and operational expertise, and a strong external network to help management teams realise their business plan, accelerate growth and develop in a sustainable way.

With a common goal and a shared value creation plan, we can achieve great results together.

We have a long-term view

We take a long-term view to Ownership. Our goal is always to create sustainable companies that continue to grow when it is time for the next step. Over more than 30 years, we have invested in over 125 companies and selling well is the final part of the journey together. Working closely with management, we always evaluate a diverse range of exit routes.

We know that realising transformative opportunities and driving operational improvement can take time. We always consider the outlook for longer term development beyond our ownership period.
