Choosing the location for establishing a holding company
Forming a holding company is a common practice in international business.
The main objective of holding companies is to hold and manage controlling shareholdings in active subsidiaries. They are referred to as “pure” holding companies when they are exclusively intended to manage equity interests or “mixed” holding companies when they also carry on business operations.
Forming a holding company addresses many interests and stakeholder requirements. Holding companies in international groups mainly enable subsidiaries to be controlled, holdings to be pooled together and the group’s policy to be harmonised.
