Our strategy

We have a clear and well defined strategy aiming at future-proofing Investor and our companies in order to maximize long-term value.

Our ultimate target is to generate an attractive total shareholder return. Our annual return requirement is 8-9 percent (risk-free interest rate plus equity market risk premium).

Our business model 

We invest in and build best-in-class companies and create sustainable value through our business model based on engaged ownership.

Sustainable value creation process
Each company we are engaged in has a dedicated business team, consisting of our board representatives in the company and investment professionals at Investor. The business teams build company knowledge, benchmark versus competition and evaluate corporate structures. Considerable time is being spent on finding
and capturing value-creating opportunities offered by long-term trends such as new technology and sustainability. Based on the analysis, we develop and constantly refine value creation plans, identifying strategic key value drivers that we believe that the companies should focus on to maximize long-term value. We present these plans to the company's Chair and CEO, drive them in the board discussions and follow up on the progress.
