Nordic Capital is powerfully structured to achieve excellence through all stages of the ownership process.

Using a deep understanding of target markets, we proactively and selectively source investment opportunities with the potential for substantive value creation. 

During the ownership period, Nordic Capital partners closely with management teams to accelerate growth and support positive transformative change at the company level.

We often capitalise on structural or trend shifts within a given industry and we minimise reliance on macro trends or the prevailing economic cycle.

We call this our “alpha focused” value creation strategy and it is core to the way that Nordic Capital builds strong, sustainable businesses and consistently generates returns for its investors.

A best in class organisational framework ensures that alpha driven excellence is achieved on a repeatable basis.
