Axel Johnson has a long-term perspective that allows us to do business and build businesses in a way that is consistent with our values.
Co-owners. We are strongly committed to our company’s management teams and work together to build the best company we can. We provide counsel, decision support, and experienced resources to committed leadership teams running the business day-to-day.
Build great companies based on long-term competitive advantage. When needed, periodically inject new capital to provide access to new opportunities.
Focused on co-ownership and alignment of mutual interests – both risks and opportunities. Where minority ownership is involved, simple governance principles to ensure reasoned and rational joint decision making on the issues that really matter.
Indefinite. No structure or obligation to sell a business in a certain time frame. We believe in continuing to own and invest in businesses as long as we are the best owner for the company.
