Andreas Halvorsen Investing Philosophy

Since its inception, Viking has employed a research intensive, long-term focused investment approach. It uses fundamental analysis to select investments, primarily public and private equity interests, across industries and geographies. Viking generally invests in companies based on a thorough assessment of their business models and fundamentals, the quality of their management teams and cyclical and secular industry trends.
Its organizational structure decentralizes investment research, analysis and decision-making and centralizes risk management. This approach enables Viking to capitalize on a broad range of ideas and expertise while ensuring that risks are reviewed and managed comprehensively and with clear accountability.
