Compagnie Financière Richemont SA

Richemont was created in 1988 by the spin-off of international assets owned by Rembrandt Group Limited of South Africa (now known as Remgro Limited). Established by Dr. Anton Rupert in the 1940s, Rembrandt Group owned significant interests in the tobacco, financial services, wines and spirits, gold and diamond mining industries as well as the luxury goods investments that, along with the investment in Rothmans International, would form Richemont.

1/ Jewellery Maisons - Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels;

2/ Specialist Watchmakers - Jaeger-LeCoultre, Piaget, IWC, Baume et Mercier, Vacheron Constantin, Officine Panerai, Roger Dubuis and A. Lange & Söhne;

3/ Writing Instrument Maisons - Montblanc and Montegrappa;

4/ Leather and Accessories Maisons - Alfred Dunhill and Lancel; and

5/ Other Businesses - Alaia, Chloé, Shanghai Tang, and Purdey.


In addition to its luxury goods business, Richemont holds an 18.9 per cent interest in British American Tobacco, one of the world’s leading tobacco groups.
