We are committed to a long-term and responsible investment strategy to ensure a sound financial foundation for the owner family’s activities as well as contributing to a sustainable development in the world.
KIRKBI’s Investment Activities are divided into two areas: Core Capital and Thematic Capital.
Through the Core Capital investment portfolio, we are committed to ensuring a sound financial foundation for the family’s activities via Equity investments, Real Estate and Fixed Income investments.
Thematic Capital builds on KIRKBI's existing portfolio of investments in renewable energy and is driven by the owner family's desire to contribute to a sustainable development in the world.
The Core Capital investment portfolio comprises Equity investments, Real Estate and Fixed Income investments. While based on a belief in value creation through responsible long-term focus as well as a long-term illiquidity premium, KIRKBI expects long-term investments to be a growing part of the total portfolio.
As part of KIRKBI's 2032 strategy, Thematic Capital builds on KIRKBI’s existing portfolio of renewable energy investments. The formation of Thematic Capital is driven by the owner family’s commitment to contribute to a sustainable development in the world.
Responsible investing and ownership
Across all its investment activities, KIRKBI aspires to create value through responsible ownership and investments.
To fulfil the inherent responsibility in the KIRKBI Fundamentals, KIRKBI has made separate Promises. These Promises entail an aspiration to ensure high responsibility standards across the investment portfolio.
As such, Environmental, Social and Governance factors are fundamental parts of assessing the attractiveness and performance of an investment. Not only in the due diligence phase, but also as part of the ongoing ownership, as KIRKBI will encourage and work closely with companies, properties and partners to improve the management of material risks to protect the value and enhance long-term returns.
The investments are regularly screened for their compliance with international conventions and norms.
