Activist Shareholders: Influencing Positive Change for Companies and Share Prices

Join the business event INSEAD Private Equity Club (IPEC) for insights on activist investment funds, the asset class that acquires a minority stake in public companies and subsequently promotes value-increasing change to board, management, other shareholders or even media. Active ownership has increased by 50% over the past 5 years, going from 607 companies with active investors in 2013 to 922 companies in 2018. Of those, 148 are European, including heavyweights like Nestlé, Credit Suisse, Pernod Ricard and Thyssen Krupp.

Ilias Läber, Partner at Cevian Capital, one of Europe’s largest active investment funds, will explain how active investors find suitable companies, develop value creation plans, deploy tools to gain influence and effect change in either governance, strategy or M&A. Take this unique opportunity to learn from one of the leading public market active-ownership investment professionals whose recent experience includes ABB and Panalpina by registering now.
