For over a quarter century Kistefos has worked to identify, invest in and enhance the value of great companies. This approach has delivered consistent performance, and numerous successful exits.

Kistefos focus on investing between NOK 10m and NOK +100m in each company, aiming at obtaining a significant ownership stake. Kistefos is opportunistic with regards to sectors, company sizes, life-cycle stages and geographies. Kistefos’ investment strategy selectively seeks out a diverse range of proprietary transactions in companies of various sizes, including build-ups, growth capital, rescue financings and buyouts.

Kistefos is an active partner to the management teams and founders, providing considerable internal resources to ensure the long-term value creation through identification of the key value drivers. Furthermore, we operate under a flexible investment mandate, giving us the opportunity to optimally support our portfolio companies throughout our ownership period.
