Financial Investments

Financial Investments consists chiefly of Orkla Eiendom (real estate) and Orkla Venture.

Orkla Eiendom is responsible for the development of properties freed up as a result of the restructuring of Branded Consumer Goods, and the development of the Group’s new head office. As at 31 December 2017, Orkla’s real estate investments had a book value of NOK 1.5 billion.

Orkla Venture was established in 2017 to reach out to a growing universe of entrepreneurial businesses and startup companies engaged in innovation outside established companies. Orkla Venture focuses primarily on technology, concepts and business models that might be relevant for Orkla’s businesses. Besides offering risk capital, Orkla hopes, by providing both expertise and other resources, to help more start-up companies succeed, also during the challenging commercialisation phase.
