ZURICH (Reuters). Roche’s chief shareholder is confident that stability will be preserved at the company once the next generation of heirs joins the family group of investors. He spoke to NZZ am Sonntag.

“The new generation has the same values ​​as the older family members,” Andre Hoffmann, the great grandson of the company’s founder, told the newspaper in an article published on Sunday.

“Our role as the owner family is to enable Roche to focus on creating sustainable values ​​over the long term. The 63-year old spoke out for the family that owns 45.01%.

The pooling agreement among the descendants Fritz Hoffmann-La Roche’s founder was established in 1948. This agreement was then extended indefinitely in 2009. In 2019, a fifth generation joined the pool.

Hoffmann is also vice-chairman of Roche. He said that family ownership in large corporations does not always work.

It is great for the company if it works. He said that if it doesn’t work, it could be dangerous.
