Earning trust from society is vital to EQT as an owner, investor, employer and corporate citizen. Explaining how the ownership model works and how the EQT funds invest, are part of EQT’s approach of being transparent not only to investors, but also to a broader set of stakeholders.
Since 2008, EQT has published an annual review each year to shed more light on the EQT approach to private equity as well as reflect on the EQT funds’ activities during the past year. It is a great pleasure to announce that the EQT Annual Review 2014 is now available.
“The way we see it, the concept of ‘future-proofing’ companies also includes earning trust from society. Hence, other key values for EQT as an owner and investor are transparency and respect. My long-term ambition for EQT is to become the most reputable private equity firm. I see this as absolutely crucial – without being perceived as open and honest, we will not get our ‘license to operate’ from important stakeholders on a global, as well as local level. We need to constantly show the world that we are good people, doing good things,” says Thomas von Koch in his Statement from the Managing Partner and CEO.
