About Helsinki Capital Partners

The idea behind the foundation of Helsinki Capital Partners (HCP) in 2007 was clear: a desire to be an open and honest asset manager. From the beginning, HCP has been committed to complete transparency in all operations. This includes telling customers how much they pay directly and indirectly to the company for the service that they receive. Through their work, HCP’s employees live their values and create shared value in rich cooperation with stakeholders.

HCP is a Finnish, Helsinki-based company that operates globally. The company has three funds, and it offers services to four partner groups: private investors, institutions, professional athletes, and artists. HCP believes in active and responsible portfolio management with workers’ skin in the game. HCP is a modern, change-seeking asset manager with its headquarters at a cultural center, the #HCPSPIRIT tour bus as its mobile office, and its innovative projects for the wellbeing of society.

The B Corp Certification offers us concrete tools to systematically assess our sustainability performance and make our performance public. The certification separates the authentic mission-based companies from the masses. As a B Corp, we think that we have even more resources than before to continue redefining the financial sector and the business world.

The Change We Seek®

With its transparency, agile and modern working methods, and work for a healthier society, Helsinki Capital Partners wants to take part in building a better financial sector and better society at large. This is not an easy task in an industry that has been caught for endless misdeeds. But the challenge is worth taking.

As any asset manager’s, HCP’s task is to create wealth, but the company wants to accomplish the task responsibly. For HCP, value is much more than monetary value and profit maximization. The broader sense of value that the company fosters means that besides investing in financial instruments, HCP aims to invest in people, in humanity.

Every day, HCP seeks to be an even better and more sustainable member of society. Systematic improvement of responsibility has grown into one of the main strategic goals of the company. By improving themselves and being open and honest, HCP’s employees think that they can trigger a positive change in their surroundings.

What makes us a better company?
