We develop leading businesses. During Ahlström Capital’s ownership, we support our portfolio companies’ development mainly via board work and support to management. We are an active owner with a strategic, long-term mindset, and asset-specific value creation plans drive our efforts.As a responsible investor we also want to impact the environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance of our investments. Mergers and acquisitions as well as transformational investments to improve business profile are also an integral part of our way of working.
One of our key strengths is our AC Network, consisting of our owners as well as the boards and management of Ahlström Capital and its portfolio companies.
During the investment process, we always make a comprehensive analysis of the target company. It is crucial to understand the company’s markets, competitive strength, and leadership & organisation, as well as historic performance vs. peers, current momentum, and possible limitations to value maximisation.
