WHO WE ARE
History

History
Vind established its current investment approach and initiated a transformation of its portfolio in 2008.

The roots of Vind trace back two generations to the entrepreneur Leif Høegh who founded a shipping business in 1927. Leif Høegh & Co started within oil tankers and then entered niches such as bulk carriers, liner shipping, cruise lines, car carriers, reefers and LNG tankers. Vind sold its part interests in the shipping activities in the late 1990s and no longer has investments within the shipping industry.

WHAT WE DO
Listed equities
Ownership of listed equities constitute the main part of the operation of Vind. The portfolio consists of around ten positions in companies located in countries across Europe.

We only invest in companies that we are prepared to own for decades. These companies are profitable with good long-term prospects and operate with relatively low levels of business risks and financial debt.

We typically get to know and monitor companies thoroughly before we make an investment. When we do invest, we seek to take positions that have a large impact on our business and future. Positions each normally constitute 5-15% of our total asset base.
Industrial ownership
Vind seeks to provide a stable and permanent home for private businesses in need of ownership change. Our goal is to provide the best possible conditions for long-term industrial development of the businesses.

We require similar attributes for potential investments in private companies as we do for our listed equity positions.

We contribute primarily through board representation backed by strong analytical and functional support. We can also invest together with similarly oriented partners.

Real estate
Vind is a part owner of the real estate company Høegh Eiendom. The company owns office buildings in central Oslo and develops office, residential and logistics properties in Oslo and surrounding areas.
Other
Vind cooperates closely and shares certain investments with other entities in the Høegh family group. Høegh Capital Partners is responsible for managing our back office operations, excess liquidity and select smaller portfolio positions.
