2010s: Stronger asset management focus and greater financial flexibility
At the start of the decade Industrivärden becomes the largest shareholder in Volvo. Many industrial companies struggle with lingering effects from the financial crisis of the 2000s, and focus is directed primarily on various measures in existing portfolio companies. Growing competition in the capital market combined with greater polarization of active and passive management puts greater demands on asset managers. Against this background, in February 2016 Industrivärden unveils a refined strategy for stronger asset management focus and active ownership coupled with increased financial flexibility. With a foundation on the development steps taken during the latter half of the decade, the Company strengthens its capacity for long-term value creation.
