La Française model

A multi-affiliate business model and multiple core competencies
Environmental and societal challenges are opportunities to reconsider the future. Identifying drivers of change and understanding how they will fashion global growth and ultimately influence long-term financial performance is at the heart of La Française’s mission. The group’s forward-looking investment strategy is built upon this conviction.
