Prior to investing, Cevian commits considerable time and resources to develop a deep understanding of prospective portfolio companies’ fundamentals and value-enhancement potential.
Investment decisions are informed by a well-established, rigorous and proprietary fundamental research process, including comprehensive operational, commercial, financial, legal and governance analysis. Such research normally entails several months of intensive work, often on a global basis.
Once it is an owner, Cevian works with its portfolio companies to increase their long-term competitiveness, thereby creating meaningful and lasting value for all shareholders and other stakeholders. Cevian team members frequently join the boards of portfolio companies, reflecting Cevian’s constructive, hands-on and long-term approach.
