Ratos's model for company development

Ratos’s model for company development is built on a number of fundamental principles for value creation that we call the Ratos Principles. Founded on our experience of successful company development, these principles permeate our organisation and companies and serve as a guide in our day-to-day operations.

The Ratos Principles focus on corporate governance, value creation and building networks.

The principles determine the form of corporate governance that we implement in our companies and are key to the recruitment of CEOs and company boards. Our companies must have management teams and boards that share Ratos’s philosophy.

Each company has identified prioritised value-creating measures intended to take the company to the next level. These initiatives, which are based on the Ratos Principles, are limited in number and specific in their focus.

At Ratos, we make it possible for companies to develop rapidly by being a part of something larger. An important aspect of this is building strong networks between the Ratos companies. There is always a risk of becoming blind to the bigger picture in one’s own company and sector. In order to thrive in their respective segments, companies require ideas and perspectives from other companies and sectors.

Everything we do as an owner and employer is based on Ratos’s core values: Simplicity, Speed in Execution and It’s All About People.
