EQT IV’s strategic focus was medium-sized companies in Northern Europe in a variety of sectors – engineering, medical technology, telecom, automotive, branded consumer goods and business services. Investments were primarily based in Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway and Sweden.

EQT IV made controlling equity and equity-related investments, primarily in connection with buyouts, buyins or corporate joint ventures. Portfolio investments comprised established businesses with strong market positions and evident competitive advantages, with a clear potential for future sales and earnings growth.

EQT IV was terminated in 2015.
