Who We Are

Origo Capital is an independent investment firm focusing on public small- and mid caps in the Nordic markets. We do things differently. Our investment philosophy is based on a long term investment horizon, active ownership and value creation in the portfolio companies. All  investment managers have a solid back ground with more than 25 years of experience in average.  The company was founded in 2011.


We manage Origo Quest 1, a Nordic equity hedge L/S under supervision of the Swedish financial authorities, Finansinspektionen. The fund has access to significant in-house capabilities in equity research, portfolio construction, and to execute long term investments, supported by external specialists in risk control and administration. Annualized return the last three years has been 16,1%. (29-1-2013 -- 29-1-2015) 


In our research process we aim to identify the companys value drivers. Change is a key word. We look for companies with attractive valuation and significant change-potential over the coming 3-5 years. The fund normally holds 12-15 long holdings and 4-8 short holdings. Our investment style can be summarised as; 

  • Active owners
