Corporate Group

Investment strategy

Our overarching investment strategy is based on long-term ownership whereby additional value is generated over time by bringing together knowledge, competence and capital.

Connecting Capital is a Swedish limited liability company and operations are conducted without time constraints, with investment horizons that vary depending on the development and needs of holdings.

Our investments are structured within three areas:

• Majority Holdings
• Real estate
• Asset Management

Connecting Capital invests mainly in unlisted companies, with varying ownership shares and degrees of maturity. To a certain extent, we also invest in listed companies and conduct asset management in cooperation with the market’s leading asset managers.

Business concept

Connecting Capital’s business concept is to invest in well-managed companies with sound underlying operations. The companies we acquire face a process of change in which we are able to contribute additional value generation through active and responsible ownership, as well as capital.

Connecting Capital conducts its operations as a limited liability company and does not impose time constraints on its investments. Value shall be generated through acquisitions, development, mergers and divestments.

Connecting Capital shall focus on value generation by means of long-term investments in stable and well managed companies with strong cash flow.

Connecting Capital shall maintain a strong capital base, providing us with the opportunity to act quickly and take advantage of business opportunities that arise, regardless of the market situation and economic trends.
