Worthwhile Capital Partners

Niclas Sundström is a Partner responsible for advising our institutional investors on geopolitics, geoeconomics, investment-impacting statecraft developments, macroeconomics and other key policy areas. Advisory themes include EU, G7, G20, and BRICS, with regards to clean energy security, secure supply chains, critical tech policy, including the emerging new defence/dual use investment framework, AI and cybersecurity, as well as the policy tailwinds and geoeconomic dynamics behind natural climate solutions strategies. Niclas is also currently a member of the US-EU Trade and Technology Council Working Group on Secure Supply Chains, advises the Ukrainian government on mobilising private capital into the post-war clean energy reconstruction, and advises Nato on clean energy infrastructure security and supply chain security. In addition, over the last few years he has led a project focusing on Chinese involvement in critical infrastructure in Europe.

Over the last 30+ years, Niclas has held positions at Citibank, Citigroup, Salomon Smith Barney, and advised senior management at Goldman Sachs and BP for nearly two decades. In addition, he has been a member of the Advisory Board of Finisterre Capital, a long-term advisor of Brummer & Partners, worked for the G7 group of industrialised countries on financial and policy intelligence inside Russia, and advised West European, East European, Ukrainian, Scandinavian, and Russian governments. Niclas has been based extensively in different locations in Russia, Ukraine, Eastern and Southeastern Europe, and the UK. He has also spent an increasing share of his time working with China-related issues alongside an intensifying and long-term West-Russia confrontation and deepening West-China tensions, having been involved in Russia-Chinese issues already in the 1990s, visiting China to discuss the then Russian economic reform process with Chinese authorities. He has also previously been directly involved with post-war and post-authoritarian economic and financial reconstruction in the Balkans, and the former Soviet Union at the highest level.
