Considering largest enterprises in the CIS and the European space, it can be revealed that the majority of them are owned by foreign investors. Simultaneously, bulk of such organizations are located in Luxembourg, Holland, Switzerland, and also in Cyprus. This means that for certain reasons, at some stages of fulfilling commercial activities, the owners of large enterprises change business structuring and create holding – model that combines management chains into one general structure.
Holding is a type of business structure – vertical consolidation of legal entities that includes a maternal enterprise and subsidiaries. Maternal organization controls subsidiaries operation and controls their shares. The holding is usually not engaged in trade, services or production. The main task of the holding structure is assets ownership and management. But in certain European countries, it is possible to combine the work of the holding and trading purposes, however, from the point of view of security and asset protection, this direction of mercantil implementation isn’t recommended.
