The NEA Public Value approach

NEA Public Value applies a private equity approach to listed companies by building significant influential positions in Nordic nano/micro/small-cap companies with market capitalization up to SEK 1bn. Additionally, the fund can invest in pre-IPOs.

NEA PV invests in high-quality companies which are considered undervalued compared to their inherent value creation potential.

NEA PV’s primary value creation approach is to be an active owner and support management and/or the Board by proactively identify and promote initiatives that the company may undertake to create sustainable long-term value.
