A.P. Moller Holding, the investment arm of A.P. Møller og Hustru Chastine Mc-Kinney Møllers Fond til almene Formaal (The A.P. Moller Foundation), moved to new offices in 2017 and established an organisation reflecting the growing portfolio of businesses.
Established in 2013, A.P. Moller Holding’s role is to safeguard the long-term viability of the core businesses in which the Foundation has significant holdings, most notably A.P. Moller - Maersk and Danske Bank, and to ensure a continued diversified portfolio in order that the company can withstand unexpected developments in its core holdings. In addition, A.P. Moller Holding is to invest in and build value creating businesses that have a positive impact on society.
“Our holding company has been established to support our core holdings, while also providing the financial means to the A.P. Moller Foundation’s donations, for generations to come. This means our time horizon is many years. We do this by trying to safeguard the long-term viability of our current portfolio and by investing in and building new businesses,” says Robert Maersk Uggla, CEO of A.P. Moller Holding.
Supporting A.P. Moller - Maersk and Danske Bank
The Foundation’s 51% shareholding in A.P. Moller - Maersk was transferred to A.P. Moller Holding when the latter was established at the end of 2013. In 2015, A.P. Moller Holding also became
a 20% shareholder in Danske Bank, when A.P. Moller - Maersk decided to exit its shareholding in the leading Scandinavian bank to further focus its business on fewer activities.
