Arkwright



Arkwright is a management consulting firm offering strategy and advisory services to private corporations, investors, NGOs and start-up companies. We believe in pragmatism, meticulousness and in deep knowledge of the industries in which we operate. At the heart of our mission is the creation and implementation of enduring performance improvements and growth strategies, in partnership with our clients.

When we founded Arkwright in 1987, we did so with a strong belief that clients’ sustained success requires deeper collaboration and a different working model than what we experienced at the time. Since then, our focus on deep-rooted, long-term partnerships with selective clients has formed the basis of our approach and helped us grow to what we are today: An international consultancy with Nordic roots, operating truly globally, from our offices in Stockholm, Hamburg, London and Oslo. Arkwright is owned by senior staff.


We work mainly with high profile strategy projects with growth focus and in close cooperation with our clients at top management and board level. We work extensively in the financial services sector, and in a range of industry niches including property development, manufacturing, med-tech, high-tech, renewable technologies, and business services. We work closely with private equity clients in conjunction with their investment opportunities across all industries. We are pragmatic about methodology and passionate about creating results for our clients. Because every client faces its own set of unique challenges, we believe that each one requires tailored, client-oriented advice based on our strong analytical skills and deep business know-how. We contribute to our clients’ success with expert industry insights and facts that matter.


In recent years the Stockholm team has achieved strong profitable growth and has set ambitious development targets going forward.
