Switzerland is home to some of the wealthiest families in Europe. Many of these families have created a family office to manage and grow their wealth. Our database of the 70 largest Swiss single family offices summarizes the most relevant investment companies and provides valuable information on the family offices. In the following we present three of the largest investment groups of Swiss billionaires.
1. Interogo Holding (Kamprad family office)
In the first rank of the wealthiest Swiss families with family offices is the Kamprad family. The three sons of IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad were nationalized in the canton of Vaud and manage the family’s investment affairs from here. Interogo Holding is a subsidiary of Interogo Foundation and holds investments in non-IKEA assets. In addition to promoting sustainable practices, the Kamprads are active as real estate and private equity investors, among other things.
2. Sandoz Family Office SA (Landolt family office)
With an estimated fortune of CHF 8.5 billion, the Landolt family is one of the richest Swiss. Through its family office, Sandoz Family Office SA, the family holds its shares in the pharmaceutical company Novartis and is active as an investor in various asset classes. These include in particular the hotel and watch industries. In addition, the Sandoz Family Foundation has a long tradition as a patron of the arts and culture.
3. Massellaz SA (André Hoffmann family office)
André Hoffmann is the great-grandson of Fritz Hoffmann-La Roche, the founder of the Roche pharmaceutical group. As Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors he is still involved in the fortunes of the group. Through Massellaz SA, Hoffmann manages the family’s assets, with the investment company primarily pursuing impact investments and philanthropic activities.
