Altor is an incredible platform and a fun team to work with. Altor is a differentiated investor in the mid-market. The flexible mandate allows to partner with exciting companies to create value. We are a growing and learning firm- it is fun to be part of it and take a role in shaping it. Altor is founder-led and this shows in how the organization cares about individuals. I continue to be fascinated by the combination of the highly distinguished profiles of our team and each individual’s humbleness.
When I started working at Altor I was surprised by the sheer breadth of the work we do – no two days are the same! As investment professionals we are expected to build a ‘Swiss Army knife’ of capabilities related to both deal sourcing/execution and portfolio value creation. We work as generalists so have to be familiar with subject areas within e.g. corporate finance, strategy execution, debt structuring, and law. Since we all join with various backgrounds, we each have our ‘spikes’ and can leverage colleagues with either more experience or with a particular background to get help with any issue at hand.
From the very first day I truly felt that Altor is a company that takes care of its employees and makes an effort to ensure that each employee feels as a part of the Altor family – I always feel welcomed in whichever Altor office I visit. My best advice to anyone thinking about taking a job in Private Equity or at Altor? Don’t underestimate your knowledge or skills and don't hesitate to bring your ideas forward when you believe they can add value to the company.
Altor for me is my ambitious work family that I learn from every day. What’s most challenging in my role is the continuously changing market environment and thereby varying work tasks. No day is ever the same and I think it is really fun to follow our investments throughout the years and see their development. My best advice to anyone wanting to take a job in Private Equity? Don't be afraid of learning-by-doing and taking initiative!”
