More than 100 years of building great companies

Investor has operated with the same business philosophy since the company was founded in 1916 – to invest in companies and actively contribute as a leading shareholder to their long-term success.

Over the years, we have steadily evolved in step with boom times, depressions and recessions, with globalization trends and with constantly changing capital markets, all to capture new opportunities and create value.

We have invested in companies in new and attractive markets and industries, but have also divested holdings along the way. Since 1916 our willingness to invest has been consistently based on the same business philosophy.
