The fund managers of the Altor funds seek local expertise from their investment advisors and professional networks. We currently use more than 45 dedicated investment professionals, from the Nordic and DACH regions, all having international experience in fields such as private equity, consulting, investment banking and from various industrial sectors.
The mix of professional backgrounds allows the team to support the funds with expertise and skills relevant to each specific value creation agenda.
Altor Equity Partners, investment advisor to the three first funds, operates out of offices in Copenhagen, Helsinki, Oslo, Stockholm and Zurich to further enhance local networks and facilitate the interaction with our portfolio companies. Having the teams working across countries also ensures and promotes a shared culture and values.
Altor Fund Manager, is the main operating entity for Altor Fund IV and Altor Fund V, which has its legal domicile in Sweden and is regulated as an AIFM entity (Alternative Investment Fund Manager) by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority.
As important, the success is dependent on the ability to attract and retain top talent in the portfolio companies and in the Board of Directors – where Altor has strong relationships with seasoned industrial executives, such as Hans Stråberg, Fredrik Cappelen and Eivind Reitan, who can contribute to building world class companies.
The network is also used to identify specific resources that can be added to management teams of portfolio companies to complement with skills and experiences that are valuable for various situations.
