FAM is owned by the three largest Wallenberg Foundations – the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, the Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation, and the Marcus and Amalia Wallenberg Foundation – via the holding company Wallenberg Investments AB.
FAM focuses its ownership on a number of strategic holdings and a selection of alternative investments. By actively contributing to the long-term development and growth of holdings, their dividend capacity and value can increase over time. Growth in the value of holdings and dividends from FAM contribute to the Foundations’ value growth and their ability to give grants for research and education.
The goal is to create returns and real growth in FAM’s assets over time by leveraging the experience and competence of FAM’s organization in combination with the expertise of the Wallenberg family network.
