Our investment philosophy

At Savola, strategic investment is our specialty, and we know that expertise and experience are what counts. We invest in our core sectors and region (food and retail in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey) on the basis of a track record dating back to 1979. This approach means that we can invest our capital effectively and creating value for investors and shareholders.

The structure of our group reflects this philosophy: our managed investments are overseen by Savola Foods and Savola Retail, and we also hold a portfolio of strategic non-managed investments. The latter includes stakes in complementary businesses such as Almarai (36.52%), Herfy (49%) and Kinan (29.9%), alongside smaller investments in non-core sectors.

In 2015, our investment strategy saw us report net income of SAR 1.79 billion and earnings per share of SAR 3.36. But at Savola the figures are only part of the story. We also like to measure success in terms of the companies we build, the ethical business model we spread and the positive impact we have on the society around us.
