Our way of working
Our aim is to maximise the value of our portfolio companies
We offer more than just a source of finance. Our goal is the profitable growth of our portfolio companies. We work closely with our portfolio companies and their management to create long-term growth and improve profitability. The growth can happen both organically and through acquisitions.
We also offer our portfolio companies many kinds of expertise through our wide network. We co-operate with the region’s entrepreneurs, organisations, banks and other financiers.
We are not permanent shareholders in any of our target companies. Our exit strategy is to withdraw within 3-7 years, for example, through the trade sale or the sale to another private equity investor.
We have executed more than 50 different transactions and financed approximately 90 companies. Our average investment period has been approximately 5.5 years.
Responsibility – the consideration of Environmental, Social and Governance factors – is important to us in our own, as well as in our investee companies’ operations. We take concrete action to implement responsible investing: we review the progress of our own ESG Policy; we identify ESG risks and opportunities prior to the acquisition of companies; and we act as active owners and expect appropriate disclosure of and action on ESG issues by the investee companies. We believe that high business ethical requirements and high return requirements are not contradictory goals.
The field of Private Equity and Venture Capital in regulated. We are a member of the Finnish Venture Capital Association (FVCA) and registered with the Financial Services Authority in compliance with the Alternative Investment Fund Manager’s directive (162/2013).
We follow the International Private Equity and Venture Capital Valuation Guidelines (IPEVG) and the Investor Reporting Guidelines of Invest Europe.
