The producer of sanitary equipment today is in majority-owned by the American Financial Investor Masco corporation and in minority by the family of Klaus Grohe.

Especially in moments of succession planning or companies which are close to a breakthrough, Syngroh wants to assist with their skills. They gained this expertise by managing and growing the sanitary company hansgrohe from a small company with a turnover of 35 million DM in 1977 to a turnover of today more than 1 billion euros. The volume of Syngroh Family Office is of 100 million euros and is planned to invest and acquire between three and five companies until 2022. The structure of the single family office is threefold with the main company syngroh, an integrated advisory firm called syngroh advisory and syngroh capital the branch who makes the decisions regarding acquisition or sale of companies. The office is led by Richard Grohe a son of Klaus Grohe and Robert Clausen, an investment banker with long experience at BNP Paribas and Credit Suisse and working for the Grohe family for more than 20 years.

Proventus is the life’s work of Robert Weil, one of Sweden’s most unorthodox investors. In 1969 with only 20 years, he started his first investment company Weilinvest which would later be renamed to Proventus. He and his company were an active driver of the professionalisation, internationalisation and improvement of transparency of the Swedish capital market. As an investment company they acquired in their 50 years of existence various companies. After the acquisition of the companies, they reformed and optimized them, held them and sold them later. Notable examples are the Swedish toy company BRIO, later sold to Ravensburger. In another transaction Weil acquired Götabanken (one of the most important financial actors in the Swedish finance system) and later sold it to SPP, Sweden’s largest insurance company. They also did a restructured PUMA in 1990, replacing the management and restructuring the company to later sell their shares to an American Investor. Robert Weil has outspoken political views against nationalism, antisemitism and supports several Jewish organisations worldwide, also comments on politics in the most important newspaper in Sweden, Dagens Nyheter.

The company structure of Proventus as of today is twofold. One part is comprised of Proventus Capital Partners which is an alternative banking institution, providing loans between 10 million and 100 million to mid-sized companies who are not able to raise equity for expansions and acquisitions. They invest in all sectors without a specific industry focus. Northern countries like Scandinavia, the British Isles and Germany are core countries for Soventus Capital Partners. The capital to make these investments comes from 5 funds which received capital from various pension funds and the mother company Proventus AB. The strategy is to provide a tool tackling deficits in the financial sector, where companies are left without adequate access to classical financial institutions and loans. The four funds combined comprise of capital around 20 billion euros for direct lending.

The second smaller branch is called Proventus Invest and operates in two ways. One branch of Proventus Invest operates as a hedge fund, doing opportunistic investments in mispriced companies in order to sell them in the short-medium term with a bonus. Second, the company focuses on longer-term investments in companies or asset around the Nordic region.

Why it makes sense to be part of a Multi Family Office

For a HNWI (a high net worth individual) it can definitely make sense to become member of a Multi Family Office. These Offices are usually managed by very experienced asset managers, and provide a substantial network. As a member you will gain contact with other HNWIs or entrepreneurial families, strengthen your professional network, or gain possibilities for future business deals or lucrative investments. Multi Family Offices also offer the possibility to become part of a club deal, where a homogenous circle of investors pool capital to realise the acquisition of premium assets, for example, prime real estate. These deals are not offered if you are just another client at your (private) bank where the attention of an asset manager is split among many more wealthy clients.  On the other hand, in relation to a Single Family Office, where you have asset managers only structuring and managing your assets,  the costs of a Multi Family Office are much lower, since you share your managers with other wealthy families.

This is the minimum fortune of a HNWI person to join a Multi Family Office

Usually Multi Family Offices do not have an explicit financial threshold to become eligible as a member. Regarding our experience, the usual fortune of a person to join a Multi Family Office are 8 digits or more. This is an amount of capital when it makes sense to pay specialists and highly qualified asset and tax managers to help you most effectively to structure and manage the family or personal fortune. Some Multi Family Offices also allow people with a lower net worth to join a Multi Family Office, but this remains the exception. Lower entry requirements sometimes occur in bank-related Multi Family Offices, when banks open their own Multi Family Office to retain wealthy clients.  On the other end are also no limits, specialised and very wealthy family offices have even much higher entry barriers or only allow invited members to join their office. Since Multi Family Offices are not a protected term, therefore everyone can open one, making it harder to get to a clear cut definition.

How to become part of an exclusive Multi Family Office in Europe?

The usual process is to reach out to a Multi Family office as a wealthy client and to engage in a conversation about how you want to structure your assets. Depending on your strategy, your fortune and also the capacity of the Multi Family Offices you can reach a joint conclusion it makes sense to join or regarding your needs you are better served at a traditional bank or a private bank.  Depending on if you want your assets actively managed or rather prefer only an advisory role of the Multi Family Offices there are a great variety of alternatives to reach out to. Our lists, the links you can find below this article, help you to find the adequate Multi Family Office, which best serves your needs. Some Multi Family Offices are closed for new members, in these cases, it is not possible to join them.

How did the Boehringer / von Baumbach family earn their fortune?

The fortune is stemming from the global pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim one of the leading pharma companies worldwide. The company is one of the leaders in animal healthcare and offers a range of medicine especially regarding respiratory diseases. The company is still today private and not listed at the stock exchange. It made in 2018 a profit of 2.1 billion euros and reported revenue of almost 17,5 billion euros. More than 50.000 people are employed globally at the company. The revenues stem predominantly from human medicine (72%) and nearly a quarter from medicine for animals (23%).  It was found by Albert Boehringer in 1885 in Ingelheim, therefore, the name Boehringer Ingelheim. His father found in 1817 the drugstore Boerhinger in Stuttgart which later became the different chemical company Boehringer Mannheim operated by his brother but sold to the Engelhorn family.  Boehringer Ingelheim was a company of a bit more than 20 people at the beginning selling tartar and derivate products. Today the fortune of the family clan of the Boehringer von Baumbachs is estimated, according to Handelsblatt with 42,4 billion euros in the last year.

How did  Boehringer Ingelheim develop?

One of their first commercially super successful inventions was to produce lactic acid in great quantities with the help of a special type of bacteria. This was sold in the beginning as baking powder. Another successful prewar product was a lemonade called Chabeso based on lactic acid, which was produced internationally but did not survive the fierce competition after the second world war, that is why it was discounted in the 1960s. The first actual pharmaceutical for what they are known today was called Laudanon, and was an opium-based pain killer in 1915.  In the following decades they produced coffein, morphin and codein as raw materials for pharmaceuticals, and expanded internationally by opening their first international branch in Vienna, still today responsible for all Eastern Europe and Central Asia. The next milestone and still one of the strongest segments of the company, was research about medication for respiratory diseases. It started with the commercialisation of Lobelin in 1923 which was a drug to battle respiratory arrest. A lot of other medicaments followed mostly in the area of cardiovascular diseases or the previously mentioned respiratory malfunctions. Further famous medicaments were the 1950 commercialised Buscopan tackling all kind of stomach cramps. Today their best selling drugs are Pradaxa which helps to prevent blood clots and Spiriva which is to tackle respiratory diseases. Number three and four in the ranks of top-selling drugs both are medicating Diabetes, one of the diseases most heavily affecting the developed countries in the 21st century.  Their latest bold management move was a swap with Sanofi, where Boehringer Ingelheim swapped their branch of over the counter drugs for humans against the veterinary division of Sanofi, strengthening their profile in the animal medicine market. They are among the companies with a very strong profile in research. Their annually budget for R&D is around three billion euros. Currently, apart of animal health, a big focus of Boehringer Ingelheim is the whole range of biomedicine, manifested for example through the acquisition of the Austrian biotech company ViraTherapeutics for 210 million euros last year. Another investment made in Austria in the same field is the production facility for cellular culture in Vienna for 700 million euro, the greatest investment ever made by the company.

Does the Boehringer family have a Single Family Office?

Yes they do, and it is called Profunda. They were able to attract several high profile asset manager, tax managers among others. Unfortunately very little is known what is the focus and the investment strategy of this prestigious high-value single family office. Another highly qualified member of their single-family office, Sven Bäumle became later a partner at KPMG, showing the high dedication and quality with which they are managing their assets.  About the asset management strategy of concrete acquisitions purchased by PROFUNDA for the Boehringer von Baumbach family is nothing publicly known, neither about the classes of assets. According to the private banking magazin, the chairman of the supervisory board, Christian Boehringer was the victim of a case of art fraud, where an art consultant overcharged purchases of paintings and other luxury assets.

How did the Bettencourt family earn their fortune?

Their fortune stems from one main source, the 33% share in the biggest beauty company worldwide, L’Oreal, which was founded by the grandfather of the current head of the family, Francoise Bettencourt Meyers, richest women in the world with an estimated wealth of 56,4 billion dollars according to Forbes. L’Oreal was found by Eugene Schueller a French of German descent in Paris as he developed in 1909 a hair dying formula he named Oreale. In 1919 he founded the company which eventually will become L’Oreal as the society of safe hair dying. As it started in hair dying the product range offered by L’Oreal is much wider and more than 80000 people work for the company as of today. In the last year, L’Oreal made a revenue of nearly 27 billion euros, and had a profit of 4,92 billion euros, resulting in a margin of 18.3%.

How did  L’Oreal develop?

From a hair dying company employing three people in 1920, to 86000 employees in 2019 was a long way and marked by many mergers and acquisitions. In 1964 L’Oreal acquired the perfume brand Lancôme which is still sold today, in 1965 Garnier the second most successful beauty brand in the L’Oreal portfolio. In 1970 Biotherm a company focused on face refreshers was added to the portfolio. In 1973 was the first time a venture into the pharmaceutical market, with the acquisition of Synthelabo which was later merged to Sanofi a still operative pharmaceutical company. In 1996 was Maybelline acquired, a US mass make up company, making L’Oreal the undisputed leader in the beauty industry in the United States. Very successful products are for example Garnier Fructis or the Giorgio Armani perfumes, especially Acqua di Gio. Until today the companies Nestlé and L’Oreal are closely tied, with Nestlé having a share of over 20% of the company.

Does the Bettencourt family have a Single Family Office?

Yes, they do, it is called Tethys Invest. According to a French newspaper, it is active in investment in diverse areas, so far mainly the health industries. It is managed by the former chief executive officer of the Lazarus bank an intimate to the Bettencourt family. Tethys invest is structured as a private equity fund with a capital of more than three billion euros and it will be the institution in the Bettencourt universe who receives the yearly dividends from L’Oreal, guaranteeing also in the future a steady and stark inflow of capital. For the year 2015, the dividend payments for the Bettencourt share of L’Oreal will mount up to 500 million euros and stay in that volume in the consecutive years. Tethys Invests’ founding stands in stark contrast to the asset management of Francoise Bettencourt Meyers mother Liliane Bettencourt who was at the end of her life under the guardianship of her grandson because she gave away nearly one billion in assets to a famous French photographer who was later sued for taking advantage of her. The daughter’s investment strategy differs greatly from her mother’s activities in the previous decades.

How does the Bettencourt family invest?

One of the first acquisitions carried out by Tethys invest was into Elsan who is operating Frances second biggest private hospital. Strengthening and demonstrating the health focus of the single family office. Another investment also in the health segment is the acquisition of Sebia, a provider of medical equipment and technology for in-vitro diagnostic testing. Here Tethys invest acquired a majority stake and added it to his portfolio. A third company where Tethys is invested, is the company Provepharm Life solutions, a company who develops and commercializes pharmaceutical drugs. Although the statement at funding Tethys Invest was to investments in diverse economic sectors, so far the focus of the single-family office had clearly been the health sector. Relating it to the knowledge gained in the health-related field of skin care these investments make a lot of sense and could produce synergies for the Bettencourt Family. One investment outside of the health sector of Téthys Invest is a 20% stake in Galileo Global Education, a provider of multidisciplinary and global education who wants to reinvent the way private education is offered.

How did the  Wertheimer Brothers earn their fortune?

They did not earn it, but inherited from their father, Jacques Guy Wertheimer who was a long time, often conflictive business partner of fashion and perfume legend Coco Chanel, alongside his father Pierre Wertheimer. Through his initial help expanding her very successful perfume Chanel No. 5 to the US market, Wertheimer, Chanel and a third associate opened up a joint venture in which he put his capital, and Coco Chanel her brand name in a split of 70% to 10%, 20% belonging to a third business partner. Stemming from this original Chanel Perfumes company, he was able through renegotiations with Mrs Chanel, surviving expropriation through the Nazis in World War II, to eventually take over the whole Chanel brand. His grandsons Gérard and Alain Wertheimer own today each half of the company with an estimated value of 28 billion euros. In 2018 for the first time in 108 years, Chanel published his financial results, showing a highly sustainable healthy company with 1.6 billion dollars in cash, revenue of 9.6 billion dollars and a profit of 2.69 billion dollars.

How did  Chanel S.A.S. develop?

The brand Chanel is most known for the work of two designers. Its founder and fashion mogul Gabrielle Coco Chanel and the recently passed German designer Karl Lagerfeld, are the main characters responsible for the outstanding success and longevity of the Chanel brand. Coco Chanel started the history of Chanel in 1909 when she opened her first boutique in Paris to sell hats. She later one ventured into sportswear for ladies of the higher classes. The products which made her already in the 1920-30s very wealthy, were the Channel suits, a dress for women, comfortable and elegant at the same time. It was a radical innovation at a time when the majority of the female clothing had its focus on beauty but the women wearing it often complained it was too uncomfortable. The other product which is world known and associated with the Chanel brand is the perfume No. 5, invented in 1920 and still today a top-seller among fragrances. Karl Lagerfeld became creative director in 1983 at a time when Chanel was seen as a brand of elderly ladies, losing out on younger generations and new segments of customers. His engagement made it possible for the Chanel brand to become a timeless brand and increased its attractivity also for younger wealthy generations. Until his death in February of this year he was responsible for the creative line of Chanel and helped to transform the luxury fashion boutique into a billion dollar holding.

Do Wertheimer Brothers have a Single Family Office?

They do and it is called Mousse Partners, and they are also owners of another investment company called Double Mousse. Mousse Partners is a New York-based Single Family Office very much occupied with managing and growing the Assets of the Wertheimer Brothers. Their investment range is wide and known although Chanel is known for its secrecy and privacy.  The Single Family Office was founded in 1990 by Charles Heilbronn a longtime Chanel executive to manage and structure the fortune of Chanel. Mousse Partners owns Chanel as the most important company apart of its other smaller investments. It also makes independent investments of the acquisitions realised by Chanel, which concentrate mainly on beauty and fashion. According to Forbes, Chanel owns via its investment company Doublemousse 18% of the chain of hairdresser salons called Ulta which is based in the United States and highly profitable.

How do the Wertheimer Brothers invest?

There is no clear investment focus identifiable, although Venture Capital investments make an important part of the asset portfolio of Mousse Partners.  They are invested in an Icelandic Fashion label called 66° North, originally founded to produce apt working wear for Nordic Fisherman, but since becoming a global fashion brand.  According to Yahoo the single-family office also participated in a funding round of the web-shop builder application Storr, which enables people to build and run their webshop from their phones, democratizing the way to participate in e-commerce. A completely different VC investment Mousse partners realised was into the startup Everplans, which enables families to store and make available documents and their will online. The idea is to streamline and facilitate the inheritance process and respect the will of a person after his death. The broad range already visible is complemented by the strategic investment in Counter Brands LLC, an innovative skin care and beauty company based in Santa Monica, California. Mousse Partners is sought to support its international expansion.  A further investment as made into an again completely different field, highlighting the diversity of Mousse Partners and their investment strategy. Lumiere is a start-up Chinese cinema developer and operator and also received strategic funding from Mousse Partners. It is planned to expand its cinema operations throughout China and globally. Also, the digitalisation of the art market is an interesting industry for Mousse Partners, as they invested in Paddle 8, a start-up operating an online auction house for mid-priced art between 1000 and 100.000 dollars. The investment strategy is innovative, risk-averse and distributed among a wide range of industries.
