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 since inception is 11,6% (29-1-2013 -- 29-8-2018) 


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
  • Long term investors
  • Value investors
  • Often contrarian 
  • Risk managers
