The model for value creation is characterised by a careful approach to investment selection, a drive for excellence and a committed ownership mindset. Accent Equity Funds' disciplined investing involves multiple deal sourcing channels, careful analysis, thorough due diligence and a clear post-acquisition development plan.

Our ambition is to develop the companies to be Nordic, European or Global leaders through a professional, engaged and long-term oriented approach that results in superior and sustainable returns.
We believe in creating maximum shareholder value by empowering portfolio companies to reach new heights.

The funds are independent of each other, each having its own separate control function and mechanisms, each with a unique combination of investors and in separate legal structures. Each fund structure derives from the requirements of the investor base for that fund. As a fund approaches its targeted investment level, the interest of the investor base in a new fund is evaluated. Based on input and interest from the potential investors, a new fund structure tailored to demand is established to raise new commitments for a further investment journey.

Each fund is backed by well-reputed Nordic and international institutions – including public and private pension funds, insurance companies, endowment funds, asset managers and funds-of-funds.

Some 30 institutions from 15 countries make up the investor base, of which most are repeat investors. Overall, Nordic region represent approximately 24%, other Europe 51%, the US 20% and Rest of World 5% of investments in Accent Equity Funds.
