Founded by Lars Kristian Petersson in 1992 and based in Dubai, Confidencia is a leading investor in Middle Eastern companies. With our industrial experience, network and financial strength we strive to make our companies innovative, efficient and profitable. Through active board participation we work for continuous improvement in performance.
We strive to create long-term shareholder value by owning companies with solid potential for value creation, and by applying our financial strength, experience, knowledge and network to make them leaders.
Our business operations are conducted in related industries and in markets with long-term growth potential. We are an engaged owner and work actively through the boards of our companies to identify and drive value-creating initiatives.
We believe in long-term performance improvement with decentralised management models. Our objective is to build net asset value, operate efficiently and pay out steadily rising dividends.
Our business model is based on significant ownership positions that allow us to influence key decisions in industries that we understand.
We use detailed competitive benchmarking to identify areas where our companies can improve long-term profitability and efficiency.
We look for long-term organic growth, including expansion into new geographies and new customer bases, as well as growth through innovation and acquisition.
Our strong financial position allows us to invest when the time is right, and the flexibility to inject additional capital to support strategic initiatives.
We own innovative, market leading companies that generate sustainable cash flow through significant revenue streams from services and aftermarket business.
We are committed to maintaining stringent cost controls, maximising cash flows for reinvestment or distribution to shareholders.
Our business network is a unique strategic asset, thanks to our reputation and our history of building and developing companies across the region.
In each of our companies we develop governance models that are periodically evaluated for their effectiveness. Key elements include honesty, trust and integrity, openness, performance orientation, responsibility and accountability, mutual respect and commitment to the organisation.
We always strive to be good corporate citizens and believe there is a strong link between long-term profitability and sustainable business. Our responsibilities include the environment, human rights, working conditions and the development of the communities in which operate.
