In 2015, Reynir Indahl left top Nordic private equity firm Altor Equity Partners to found Summa Equity (Summa). After long contemplation following the financial crisis, Indahl was convinced the financial system was producing negative externalities and that the current private equity model adopted by most firms would no longer be successful. Summa was developed under a new private equity model that sought to "future-proof" businesses by focusing on long term value creation and growth, in addition to traditional private equity practices of implementing best practices and productivity improvements. To find businesses best suited for long term growth with disruptive potential, Summa invested in four thematic areas that were mapped to megatrends outlined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals - trends Summa believed presented long term growth opportunities for businesses that presented commercial solutions for these challenges. After a period of successful recruiting, fund raising and deal completion, Summa needed to develop a set of practices and expectations across portfolio companies and partners. The case concludes with Indahl making three recommendations to his partners on how to align portfolio company management with Summa, build purpose-driven high performance organizations, and introduce greater clarity in the management processes.
