How the Evli story began

Carl Ahlström, Henrik Andersin, Roger Kempe and Thomas Thesleff established Evli Securities Ltd in 1985. Honesty, expertise, intellectual curiosity and courage were traits the founders all shared. The colleagues saw opportunities during the deregulation of the financial market and they spent many late November nights pondering whether there was room for a new type of broker. 

Evli grew rapidly between 1980 and 1990, and had established its position by the early 2000s. Evli was granted a banking license in 2001 and became an asset management and investment bank. In 2005 and 2006, Evli changed its strategy, with the aim of focusing its business operations especially on providing individual asset management services to its key client groups. The strategic shift helped improve the company’s financial performance and financial predictability.

In 2022, Evli Bank Plc completed an arrangement, whereby the company demerged through a partial demerger into a new asset management group Evli Plc and a company carrying on Evli Bank’s banking services, into which Fellow Finance Plc was merged, and which was named Fellow Bank Plc. (Fellow Bank changed its name to Alisa Bank Plc on April, 21, 2023.)

Having started in equity brokerage, Evli has expanded its operations in many ways during its over 35 years. The securities brokerage company first evolved into a bank and thereafter into Evli Plc, an asset management group specialized in responsible wealth management.

Evli Plc's B shares is listed on Nasdaq Helsinki’s main list.
