Score prediction: FINLAND 0 – BELGIUM 5
Let rich Belgian families invest for you!
The Belgian stock market is not among the most prominent in the world. However there is one sector in which it is really world class: family-owned holding companies.
These holding companies have been created by wealthy families in order to manage their fortune. In order to offer some family members the opporturnity to sell some shares from time to time a number of these holding companies are quoted on the stock market.
Well known Belgian Holding companies are Sofina (family Boël), Groupe Bruxelles Lambert (family Frère), Brederode (family Van der Mersch) and Ackermans-Van Haaren.
All these holding companies have had good returns over the last years and offer decent and stable dividends. Sofina for example has not lowered it’s dividend for over 50 years! So investing alongside the wealthy Belgian families offers a great opportunity.
