Who we are

We discover opportunities and develop potential by working with the right people. We look for people who share our values and our investment philosophy. People who can help us deliver results and ultimately generate value for future generations.

 

Our story

Each generation has contributed to the success of Smedvig. The solid foundations that Peder Smedvig built in the early years continue to define us. Entrepreneurial spirit, patience and modest determination have continually shaped our business philosophy for over a century.

 

Our Values

Determined

Lean into the wind.

We don’t give up. We take our time. We commit when we have conviction. We are not afraid to fail. We celebrate progress not just results.

Trustworthy

Dependable navigation.

We do what we say. We have always been a trustworthy partner and we’re proud of that. We are honest about what we think. We don’t have an ego. We look out for one another, be it our colleagues, our partners or our community.

Entrepreneurial

A ship at port cannot explore.

We are restless. We are always asking questions. We are curious and willing to learn. We seize new opportunities early. We drill down rather than spread ourselves thin.

Smedvig in the Community

North Star was established in 2019 by the 4th generation of the Smedvig Family to empower and encourage young people to reach their full potential.
