Fred. Olsen related activities

The origin of the Fred. Olsen related interests dates back to 1848 when three Norwegian brothers, Fredrik Christian, Petter and Andreas Olsen embarked on international shipping. A combination of foresight and initiative contributed to the subsequent growth – eventually into a diversified business comprising both private and public companies.

Today the Fred. Olsen related interests cover renewable energy generation and offshore wind installation, as well as cruise, media, real estate and some venture capital.

The Norwegian publicly listed (Oslo Stock Exchange) company Bonheur ASA has Mr. Fred. Olsen (fourth generation Olsen) as the Chairman of the Board and Fred. Olsen & Co., whose sole proprietor is Anette Olsen (fifth generation Olsen), responsible for the day-to-day management.

The Fred. Olsen family interests represent the majority shareholding interests in  Bonheur ASA.
