About NKP | Public Equity

Nordic Knowledge Partners (NKP) was founded by Andreas von Buchwald, a former Investment Manager with private equity firm Axcel, and we all come from a financial background with an ingrained passion for M&A.

M&A Insights, our core offering, was launched in 2018 and have grown to become the leading platform for principal investors and M&A professionals operating in the Nordics with a majority of the sponsors operating in the region (including non-Nordic funds) being long-term subscribers.

In October 2022 we launched the Public Equity platform thereby offering M&A professionals an integrated solution for analysing both the private (Nordic) M&A market and publicly-listed companies globally.
