EQT is a purpose-driven global investment organization with a 25-year history of investing in, developing and owning companies, and has a demonstrated track-record of attractive, consistent investment performance across multiple geographies, sectors and strategies. EQT manages and advises a range of specialized investment funds and other investment vehicles that invest across the world with the mission to generate attractive returns and future-proof companies.
EQT has two business segments – Private Capital and Real Assets. Both business segments are guided by a responsible approach, a digital transformation agenda as well as a thematic investment strategy.
Since inception in 1994, EQT has been a thought-leader in the private markets industry. As one of the first private equity firms in Northern Europe, EQT has grown its geographical presence and successfully scaled strategies such as Infrastructure, Real Estate, Venture Capital and established new investment strategies such as Public Value. Today, the EQT AB Group conducts its businesses through offices in 16 countries across Europe, APAC and North America with over 700 FTEs.
EQT’s well-established platform, ability to generate consistent attractive returns and long-term relationships with Fund Investors, and its unique culture, values and brand, have enabled EQT to raise EUR 62 billion of commitments since inception.
The EQT AB Group comprises EQT AB (publ) and its direct and indirect subsidiaries, which includes entities advising EQT funds as well as general partners and fund managers of EQT funds.
As a result of a structural reorganization carried out by EQT in 2012, all EQT funds established from then onwards are managed and operated in one of three onshore jurisdictions (being, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Luxembourg), with the fund manager and general partner entities of such EQT funds being held directly or indirectly by EQT AB (publ) as part of the EQT AB Group. EQT funds established prior to 2012 are managed and operated out of Guernsey. The general partner entities responsible for managing such funds are not part of the EQT AB Group, but are instead held under CBTJ Financial Services B.V. (“CBTJ”). CBTJ is owned by a number of Partners and SEP Holdings B.V., which in turn is indirectly owned by certain Partners. EQT VI was established in 2011 and is not managed or operated by the EQT AB Group, however, the EQT AB Group is entitled to revenues from EQT VI.
