About us

Cevian Capital acquires significant minority ownership positions in European public companies and uses its expertise to advance long-term and sustainable value creation.

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

Cevian’s long-term capital base is provided primarily by leading pension funds, endowments, foundations and sovereign wealth funds. Its current investment fund 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).
