Morningstar Quantitative ratings for equities (denoted on this page by) are generated using an algorithm that compares companies that are not under analyst coverage to peer companies that do receive analyst-driven ratings. Companies withratings are not formally covered by a Morningstar analyst, but are statistically matched to analyst-rated companies, allowing our models to calculate a quantitative moat, fair value, and uncertainty rating.

Ratos AB is an investment company that owns and develops unlisted medium- and small-sized Nordic companies. Its portfolio has a concentration in construction, consumer goods/commerce and industrials. Traditionally, Ratos is the largest owner in its companies, and it seeks to influence the company's development. The company sets thresholds for minimum invested amounts, and chooses not to invest in the early phases of a company's life cycle. Potential portfolio companies are traditionally headquartered in the Nordic region, but Ratos removes qualifications for portfolio company add-on acquisitions. Potential acquisitions are selected through either internal processes, or with the help of investment banks and other advisors.
