About us

Cevian Capital is an international investment firm acquiring significant ownership positions in publicly-listed European companies, where long-term value can be enhanced through active ownership.

Cevian was founded by Lars Förberg and Christer Gardell in 2002 to continue the active ownership investment strategy they initiated and have executed since 1996.

Today, Cevian Capital manages more than €13 billion dedicated to active ownership investing in Europe. Its long-term capital base is provided primarily by leading pension funds, endowments, foundations and sovereign wealth funds. Its current investment fund, Cevian Capital II, was launched in 2006 and is an evergreen vehicle.

Cevian Capital is advised by Cevian Capital AB (Stockholm), Cevian Capital AG (Zürich) and Cevian Capital LLP (London).
