History

CarVal Investors was founded by Cargill in 1987 as an arm of Cargill’s proprietary, financial trading operation.  As a value investor, CarVal grew rapidly and established a firm foundation in the wake of the United States’ financial crisis of the early 1990’s.  In the years that followed, CarVal expanded to Europe, Asia and Latin America as investment opportunities developed from ever-changing credit market cycles. 

In 2006, CarVal Investors became an independent subsidiary of Cargill, allowing the firm to expand more broadly as a fund manager while still benefiting from Cargill’s expertise. 

Today, with an experienced senior team of investment professionals and dedicated operations, tax and legal teams across the globe, CarVal Investors is a leading alternative investment manager.

Cargill is an international provider of food, agricultural and risk management products and services. Founded in 1865, Cargill is headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and employs more than 142,000 people in 65 countries.
