Building long-term relationships
EQT has a diversified blue-chip client base from all over the world, many of which have invested in the EQT funds since inception. Continuous and consultative dialogue is an important part of building and maintaining these long-term relationships.
EQT's client base
EQT has a diversified, stable, and global client base, which includes over 700 institutional investors. Among the clients are some of the leading institutions in the world, including pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, financial institutions, private wealth, endowments, and foundations.
EQT’s client base is also diverse in terms of geography. Approximately 29 percent of capital raised in active funds come from clients in the Americas. Clients from the Nordics and the rest of Europe account for around 39 percent, Asia Pacific 22 percent, and the Middle East 10 percent.
EQT aims to retain and strengthen relationships with existing clients by delivering strong risk-adjusted returns, a continuous and consultative dialogue as well as high-quality services. EQT’s Client Relations and Capital Raising team are responsible for coordinating and driving all fundraising and client service-related activities. The overarching goal for the Client Relations and Capital Raising team is to support all EQT’s business lines and funds by building and maintaining strong client relationships. As EQT expands its business, the Client Relations and Capital Raising team are constantly engaging with new clients to selectively partner with and broaden the client base further. The team is also responsible for arranging EQT’s client events, such as the Annual Investors’ Meeting, New York Investor Day, and Asia Pacific Investor Day.
