In partnership with the companies, long-term values are created mainly through sales growth and profitability improvements. How this is done in practice differs from company to company. As an active owner, we can help recruit key people and supply the capital that enables the companies to invest in product development, improved customer offerings and inroads in new markets. We can also offer a far-reaching network that can share best practices and new ideas. It might even entail making add-on acquisitions that provide revenue and cost synergies, or investments in new production technology to improve effectiveness and productivity. We always aim to offer management and the board new perspectives, particularly in sustainability issues where we work in a structured way with clear targets and continuous follow-up.
