Our Strategy

We are facing an increasingly complex, fast-moving environment. In the coming years, sustainability, digitalization, an intensifying competition for talent and geopolitics will shape both Investor and our companies.

Against this background, and guided by our purpose to create value for people and society by building strong and sustainable businesses, we continue our efforts to futureproof Investor and our companies.

Our priorities remain unchanged, but we have clarified which we define as strategic and which we define as operating. Our ultimate goal, to generate an attractive total return, is underpinned by three strategic priorities:

• Grow our net asset value

• Pay a steadily rising dividend

• Deliver on our ESG targets

Our operating priorities support the strategic priorities:

• Engaged ownership

• Ensure an attractive portfolio

• Operate efficiently

• Maintain financial flexibility

Sustainable value creation process

Each company we are engaged in has a dedicated business team, consisting of our board representatives in the company and investment professionals at Investor. The business teams build company knowledge, benchmark versus competition and evaluate corporate structures. Considerable time is being spent on finding and capturing value-creating opportunities offered by long-term trends such as new technology and sustainability. Based on the analysis, we develop and constantly refine value creation plans, identifying strategic key value drivers that we believe that the companies should focus on to maximize long-term value. We present these plans to the company's Chair and CEO, drive them in the board discussions and follow up on the progress.
