Strategy and Process

Investment strategy

The investment strategy focuses on fields where we can use the Groups ~140-year-long history of doing business in the ocean industries such as aquaculture, shipping and logistics. We invest in companies that target markets within the aquaculture- and maritime industry, and that provide leading products, technology or services to these markets. More specifically we divide our portfolio into Aquaculture, Technology and Renewable Energy.

We look for companies that have started commercialization, have achieved proof of concept, and have a proven traction in the market. For companies like this, we can contribute with our network, team, and expertise from different companies in the Grieg group to help scale the companies into profitable businesses.
