Based in London, AKO Capital is one of Europe’s leading investment partnerships. Founded in 2005, AKO Capital manages approximately USD 18.8bn across long-only and long-short equity funds.
We believe that the best way to create strong risk-adjusted return over time is to own the best assets for the long term.
Through a rigorous and proprietary bottom-up investment process we aim to build a portfolio that combines excellent economic characteristics and great management.
We have a long-term investor base that includes many of the world’s leading endowments, charitable foundations, institutional investors and sovereign wealth funds.
