Deep Understanding

Since 1996 Smedvig Capital’s London office has committed over $2B to private equity, both directly, typically as lead investor in growth stage predominantly UK and Nordic businesses, and as a limited partner via a carefully selected group of private equity and venture capital managers.

As long term investors in the space, we understand well both GP and LP perspectives, which has enabled us to develop deep and lasting relationships with some of the world’s most respected and consistently high performing managers over the course of the last three decades.

We maintain a concentrated portfolio of managers that share our focus on value creation and that demonstrate an ability to make fundamental strategic shifts in portfolio companies both to maximise value at an operating level and to adapt to changing market dynamics.
