David Wallace Wilson: Quoted by Bilan on Ikea Succession Vehicle Structures

04.07.2018 – Private client partner David Wallace Wilson was interviewed by Bilan, the leading Swiss French-speaking economic magazine, for their article " Succession Ikea, un kit complexe à(dé)monter?" on the IKEA holding structures.

Published in light of Ingvar Kamprad's recent death (the Swedish business magnate and IKEA founder), David analyses the three separate structures – a Dutch Stichting, a Luxembourg holding and a Liechtenstein foundation – which hold Ikea assets valued at over USD 50 billion.

Building on David W. Wilson's analysis, Bilan highlights the fortune attributable to Kamprad's heirs for its annual 100 European rich list against Forbes' most recent calculation.
