Elof Hansson is a trading house group owned by the Elof Hansson Foundation. The Foundation’s purpose is to further business-related education and research. It has given donations and provided support to the Chalmers University of Technology and the School of Business, Economics and Law at Gothenburg University, among other recipients.
The Group is divided into three business areas: Trade, Industry and Properties. Elof Hansson Holding AB is the parent company in the Foundation-owned Group, and the three business areas are run as wholly-owned subsidiaries.
Business area Properties consists of Elof Hansson Fastigheter AB which was founded in 2010. The background to its establishment as a separate real estate company was the need to ensure good risk diversification, improve capital utilisation, and increase returns for the foundation. It achieves this by actively managing and developing Elof Hansson’s existing property portfolio and by investing in new properties.
