The Foundation

The founder Roger Akelius has donated 90 per cent of Akelius Residential Property AB to Akelius Foundation. The foundation is registered in Bahamas and its purpose is charity. The foundation owns itself, it has no owners or members.

The foundation is governed by a Council, following a regulatory framework created by the founder. The money cannot for example go to religious or political purpose. It is the members of the Council who nominate or unseat other members. Two protectors monitor the Council as internal auditors and ensures that the Council follows its duty.

The largest beneficiary so far is SOS Children’s Villages with five hundred million SEK.
