Evli's history

Carl Ahlström, Henrik Andersin, Roger Kempe and Thomas Thesleff established Evli Securities Ltd in 1985. 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 the 2000s, in addition to organic growth, Evli grew through several acquisitions in all its business areas.

Having started in equity brokerage, Evli has expanded its operations in many ways during its over 30 years. The securities brokerage company has evolved into a bank specialized in investments that focuses on increasing the capital and wealth of its clients. Evli Bank Plc's B shares have been listed on Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd since December 2, 2015.
