Investment strategy

Ratos's focus and goal as an active owner is to contribute to the long-term and sustainable operational development of its companies.

During 2018 Ratos updated the investment criterias for new investments:

  • Headquartered in the Nordics
  • Good profitability compared to peers
  • Size >50 MSEK EBITA
  • Cash flow and debt leverage to provide dividend
  • Strong management and culture

Ratos has no limits to its holding period for its companies, but is a long-term owner with a flexible ownership horizon thanks to the fact that we invest capital from our own balance sheet. Ratos strives to be a majority shareholder in its companies, but can also choose to co-invest with other owners.
