Novator is an international private equity, growth equity and capital markets investor.

Founded by Icelandic businessman, Thor Björgólfsson in 2004, with offices in London, Iceland, Luxembourg and Switzerland, we invest in both developed and emerging markets. We manage internal money which gives us an edge to our investment strategy, primarily through flexible investment structure, quick decision-making and a focused, hands-on approach.


We are experienced in a variety of situations from traditional private and growth equity to special situations, including turnarounds of underperforming assets, equity and debt raising, and exits via M&A or IPO.


As part of our value creation process, we seek to support our investments with our resources, connections, lessons learned and best practices from our other existing or past investments.

Our Team

Our team of investment professionals have a wealth of experience sourcing and executing investments in the health, technology and telecoms sectors, and partnering with talented management teams to implement growth and value-creation strategies.
