EQT Partner promotions

#EQT Update

2020 was an unprecedented year - a year of many challenges and hardships, but also of opportunities. EQT continued on its growth trajectory and the strength of EQT’s thematic investment approach was confirmed by the resilience of the portfolio companies, which performed well despite the pandemic. Behind these achievements are people, the most important asset and a vital part of EQT’s development and future success. As a firm, we take pride in hiring and retaining world-class talent, investing in our teams, and helping our colleagues reach their full potential – both as teams and individuals.
