Today, EQT publishes its tenth consecutive edition of the Annual Review - covering the firm’s and funds’ activities during the past 18 months. The Annual Review includes a run-through of all recent portfolio transactions and numerous interviews with Partners and managers across the firm sharing exclusive insights on current and future market trends, and much more.
Thomas von Koch, Managing Partner and CEO of EQT, comments:
“In the introduction of this year’s Annual Review I wanted to highlight the importance of having an agile mindset that allows for continuous learning and new ideas, while maintaining an approach that encourages systematic testing and iteration. Or in other words, being systematically agile.”
“As EQT is in the business of future-proofing portfolio companies for tomorrow’s trends, it is essential to always stay ahead of the curve. Since January 2017, EQT has taken some ambitious actions in achieving that mission. Six new funds - across all investment strategies - were closed, some astonishing EUR 19 billion was raised and more than 60 transactions were closed. In addition, during the last 12 months, we have welcomed more than 130 new colleagues to our firm.”
