The overall purpose of Inter IKEA Group is to secure independence and longevity, and through the Franchise Division control, safeguard and develop the IKEA Concept.
Our business is organised into four divisions, with different roles in our effort to live up to our purpose;
The Franchise Division with Inter IKEA Systems B.V., the owner of the IKEA Concept, franchises the systems, methods and solutions to franchisees worldwide for marketing and sale of IKEA products under the IKEA trademarks. 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, owns and manages shopping centres anchored by an IKEA store. The division strives to create unique retail and entertainment destinations in which both the IKEA store and the shopping centre benefit from the synergy created by their shared location.
The Property Division strives to create long term value through property investments. The operation includes new property development, active management of portfolio properties and land-banking.
The Finance Division includes investments and trading activities as well as treasury management. The division seeks to ensure financial stability and stable returns over time.
The Property Division and the Finance Division support the fulfilment of our overall purpose through contribution to our financial independence and ability to maintain a long-term perspective. The two divisions are however not directly associated to any IKEA retail operation.
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.
