Expanding the horizon

Northern Horizon is a real asset manager offering diversification through specialized investment strategies. As managers, we create value by recognising unique opportunities early and executing niche strategies by offering experience insight and vertical depth to our management services. By integrating fund, asset and property management, and leveraging our extensive capital markets network, we aim to deliver an attractive, diversified investment return.

Diversification through innovation

Our approach to real asset investments is highly selective, valuing innovative opportunities over traditional targets. We are pioneers in our field and as such we provide our investors access to special markets and attractive geographies not included in the mainstream. As innovators, we went into the Baltics when the markets were only beginning to develop and more recently we are investing into healthcare assets as the first managers in the Nordics. Our approach has built a solid track record of successful investments spanning more than fifteen years.

Risk management through experience and presence

Focusing on specific locations and asset classes allows us to be the best in our business. It also helps us actively manage risks through our experienced team and local presence. Northern Horizon employs a wide range of specialists from the financial, legal and technical fields making us capable of handling a wide range of asset management challenges. Our track record includes anything from forward funding, club deals, optimised financing structures, extensive re-tenanting to large-scale refurbishment projects. A key part of our philosophy is also to be present where the investments are being made. By being close to the market, we gain access to off-market opportunities and tenant insights which allow us to optimize our strategy and effectively manage risks on a daily basis.

Corporate governance

Corporate governance

As an international asset manager Northern Horizon Capital is dedicated to good corporate governance principles. All our funds have independent boards and we strive to have a transparent, fair and professional dialogue with our investors.

All our investments are guided by the following principles:

  • We only invest in properties where our investors can expect a steady income stream and have a good chance of a medium-term capital gain.
  • We are actively focusing on minimizing and managing any potential downside risks while protecting the full upside potential of our investments.
  • We will refuse any investment opportunity which challenges our integrity or is in conflict with our mission statement and core values.
  • Each individual property is assessed upon acquisition as well as on an annual basis by independent valuators in compliance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and local valuation methods.
  • We are also committed to taking responsibility when conducting our business by integrating environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) factors into our investment decisions and operational processes. Find more about our Responsible Investment Policy.
