Nordic small caps present themselves not only as leaders in innovation and sustainable practices, but also as the potential giants of tomorrow. These companies are challenging traditional expectations with valuations that often do not reflect their real market position or their disruptive impact on the industry. Through cutting-edge technology and a commitment to sustainability, they are laying the foundations for a future where operational flexibility and strategic agility are the norm, especially in times of economic uncertainty.

We see a fascinating reality: despite volatility and financial challenges, Nordic small and medium-sized enterprises have not only survived, but thrived. This is evidence of an inherent robustness and an ability to adapt and evolve in the face of adversity, attributes that become even more relevant in the context of a potential recession. This resilience, coupled with a strategic focus on specific niche markets, provides fertile ground for growth and innovation.

Looking ahead, our vision is clear: companies like Humble, Zealand Pharma and Harvia are not only positioned to lead their respective sectors, but to redefine them. With Humble at the forefront of the global FMCG space, Zealand Pharma breaking barriers in obesity treatment, and Harvia reinventing the traditional sauna market, these companies embody the transformational potential that the Nordic markets have to offer.

Finally, the willingness to explore all sectors, from renewable energy to technology, reflects an investment philosophy that values both growth and positive impact on society and the environment. In this environment, Nordic small and medium-sized companies are not just investments; they are catalysts for change, representing a new era of opportunity for strategic and visionary investors.

All in all, Nordic small caps are on the threshold of a golden era, where innovation, sustainability and resilience are not just ideals, but the pillars of a new investment paradigm.
