Investment criteria

IK delivers strong, consistent investment returns across economic cycles. We achieve this through active management and the adoption of disciplined investment criteria.

Focused on our key geographies – the Nordics, the DACH region, France and Benelux, we seek out companies with an enterprise value of up to €500 million. We invest up to €150million of equity in each business and look for opportunities in four broad categories –business services, care, consumer goods and industrial goods.

Our Funds typically take a majority position and we look for those with significant improvement potential.

As owners, we work with management teams to expand their businesses, particularly using buy-and-build strategies in stable and consolidating industries.
