The overall purpose of Inter IKEA Group is to secure continuous improvement and a long life of the IKEA Concept. As this will require investments in both good and bad times we strive to be financially independent.
Our business is organised into four divisions, with the Franchise Division as the core.
The Franchise Division with Inter IKEA Systems B.V., the owner of the IKEA Concept, franchises systems, methods and solutions to franchisees worldwide for marketing and sale of IKEA products under the IKEA trademarks. The division has the overall responsibility to safeguard the continued success of the IKEA Concept, in order to benefit the many people over generations. Inter IKEA Systems B.V. ensures that IKEA Concept know-how is continuously developed, transferred, and made available to all IKEA franchisees.
The Retail Centre Division – Inter IKEA Centre Group – develops and manages retail destinations anchored by IKEA stores. The division strives to create unique retail and entertainment destinations in which the IKEA stores and tenants benefit from the synergy created by their shared location, which ultimately enhances the customers’ shopping experience.
The Property Division strives to create long term value through property investments. The cornerstones of the operations are management of portfolio properties and development of commercial real estate.
The Finance Division includes investment activities as well as treasury management.
The strategic investments in the Retail Centre Division and the asset management in the Property and Finance divisions aim to ensure financial stability and create long term value. The Property and Finance divisions are however not directly associated to any IKEA retail operations.
Inter IKEA Holding SA is the parent company in Inter IKEA Group. The operations in the Inter IKEA Group are decentralised and each division has far-reaching responsibility for its operations and business.
