Värde Partners

Värde Partners is a global alternative investment adviser focused on investing capital and resources across multiple segments and markets. We search for uncommon opportunities in a broad array of investments including corporate assets and sovereign debt, residential mortgages, real estate, specialty finance, transportation, infrastructure, and logistics. Our curiosity motivates us to apply our expertise against a set of global opportunities, all with the focus of creating value for our investors and empowering the common good they seek. 

Värde's approach is centered on an integrated platform with a unified focus on the generation of attractive risk adjusted returns. A key tenet of Värde’s strategy is a flexible investment approach – investing and allocating capital and resources across multiple segments and markets. 

Värde's unique culture has been one of the cornerstones of the firm's success to date and remains critical to its future. Värde’s culture is shaped by its purpose: seeking to fundamentally change lives for the good by finding innovative ways to make money for the investors it serves. Värde relies on deliberate hiring practices – which involve a careful screening of candidates not just for skills and expertise but also for “fit” – in order to preserve this valuable asset. 

Today, Värde is over 300 people strong with offices around the globe serving a diverse group of institutional investors including trusts, endowments, foundations, pension funds, corporations, and funds-of-funds. The firm has invested over $55 billion since inception and has over 90 investment professionals currently managing investments world-wide. Värde continues to have a significant presence in its city of origin – Minneapolis – but has established equally strategic offices in London, serving as our European headquarters and in Singapore, serving as our Asia Pacific headquarters. Additional offices exist to support key activities in those regions.
