Return and ownership
At Chr. Augustinus Fabrikker we strive to be the ideal owner of successful Danish businesses. We gradually expand our activities by making new types of strategic and scale investments, thus ensuring that the risk is balanced and at the same time creating opportunities for generating returns. It is a precondition for our ownership that our fundamental requirements are fulfilled: sound and solid business models, strong management, and returns matching the investment risk.
The optimal ownership structure for any enterprise, is determined by the actual situation, at any time, and potential something that changes over time. We see ourselves as owners in more contexts. We act as direct owners of Danish businesses as well as owners of listed companies, and our ownership includes both controlling positions, minorities as well as other types of partnerships. When partnering with private equity funds and other owners, we are active as co-investors, pre-IPO investors and as anchor investors in IPOs. As the ideal ownership structure may change over time, we remain flexible in case the company is better served with a change in ownership.
The SDG goals (the 17 UN sustainable development goals) are a cornerstone of our approach to ESG. Through entrusted dialogue with our companies, we focus on specific SDG goals that are relevant to the individual company, with a focus on the environment and society.
Chr. Augustinus Fabrikker’s financial investments are managed by our own teams as well as by external partners. Our financial investment strategy covers a number of asset classes where we deploy an active Asset Allocation strategy.
