We primarily invest in companies based in Northern Europe, and preferably companies that are domiciled in Denmark or Sweden.
Who we are
Solix is at the helm of a group of high-quality international companies in a diverse set of industrial sectors. We acquire and develop companies that have a clear potential to deliver sustainable and superior shareholder value. We do this by focusing on the specifics of each company and the industry within which it is active, and by providing it with the capital and resources required to fulfill its ambitions.
We only invest in companies operating in markets and sectors, which we have the ability to fully understand.
We always take a long-term perspective, which goes beyond our own ownership horison. We are prepared to sacrifice short-term profitability for long-term value creation.
As direct shareholders in all our companies, we have the ambition and patience to develop them into sustainable, market-leading organisations and to create long-term value for all our stakeholders.
Solix wants to play an active part in the transition to a sustainable world. We do so by investing in companies which already have or can develop the technology required to transition the global economy to a sustainable state.
We deliberately adopt a very focused approach, which allows us to dedicate maximum resources to developing a handful of highly attractive companies.
We embrace complex situations, where we can apply our broad range of skills and experience and demonstrate our ability to make informed commercial decisions in difficult circumstances.
Our lean decision-making process and our agile corporate structure allow us to make decisions and commitments in real time, as our key decision makers are directly involved in evaluating potential investment opportunities and developing our group holdings.
We always take control positions in each company we invest in. We operate with a clear division of responsibilities between Solix as owner, the Board of Directors, and the management of the companies.
It is the responsibility of the Board of Directors to appoint the CEO, set the strategic direction and goals and monitor performance and ESG progress.
The CEO is responsible for identifying, recruiting, and organising the wider management team.
We tailor a Board of Directors that is uniquely positioned to each individual group holding and we ensure that there is a mutual respect and personal fit between the management team and the Board of Directors. In many cases, the Board of Directors is appointed from our own network of senior industry executives, complemented, if appropriate, by external competencies, in order to achieve the optimal composition of the Board of Directors in each case.
We fully acknowledge that management is an integral part of a company’s success and that a strong management team is essential to achieving a company’s full potential.
We empower management so they take full responsibility for proposing and executing the agreed strategy and for the operation of the business as a whole.
We challenge management to set high ambitions and support them in achieving our common goals and recognise their contribution with substantial financial rewards.
We want to attract the best to our companies, and this is always the foundation for any of our recruitments. An important part of this approach is our focus on diversity both in our Board of Directors and in our management teams as our experience shows that this yields the best results and performance.
