Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Bodenholm founder Per Johansson and his team at Boden Capital are joining Catella’s fund management business acquired by Swedish investment company Athanase Industrial Partner. Johansson will be the new head of fund management at Catella Fondförvaltning, which is changing its name to Celina Fondförvaltning.

“We have followed Per and the team for many years and are impressed by the management organization and operational competence they have built up,” comments Fredric Calles, the CEO of Catella Fonder. Per Johansson founded hedge fund boutique Bodenholm Capital in 2015 in partnership with Brummer & Partners. In early 2020, the Stockholm-based hedge fund manager announced the decision to return capital to investors and liquidate its Europe-focused fundamental equity long/short funds.

“Together, we will be able to continue to further develop Catella Fondförvaltning to the next level.”

Per Johansson, Bodenholm’s former CEO Erik Orving and a select group of former Bodenhom employees joined forces to launch Boden Capital in late 2020. Johansson and the Boden team are now joining Catella Fondförvaltning. “We see this as an opportunity to be part of the investment that Catella Fondförvaltning is now making,” comments Johansson. “Together, we will be able to continue to further develop Catella Fondförvaltning to the next level.”

Catella Fondförvaltning used to be Catella’s wholly-owned subsidiary engaged in active and alternative asset management for private and institutional investors. The company has been engaged in fund management since 1998 and currently has a fund range within equities, credits, and hedge funds. The new reinforcements are part of Catella Fondförvaltning’s efforts to become one of the leading independent fund management houses in the Nordic region. Following Athanase Industrial Partner’s acquisition of Catella’s fund management arm, Catella Fondförvaltning is changing its name to Celina Fondförvaltning.
