Fiat’s Founders are Leaving Italy

The aristocracy of Italian industry are moving their massive investment company to the Netherlands.
The Agnelli family founded automaker Fiat in 1899, and built a fortune over more than a century. Their $10 billion investment firm Exor now owns large stakes in global companies including Fiat Chrysler, Ferrari and The Economist Group. Exor says the move from Turin to Amsterdam will simplify operations since Fiat Chrysler, Ferrari and other businesses in its portfolio have already based themselves in the Netherlands. When chairman John Elkann — great-great grandson of Fiat founder Giovanni Agnelli — proposed the move back in July, he said it was natural for Exor to align with “our principal investments [that] have themselves already reorganized their own corporate structure to better reflect their global activity.” The move to the Netherlands would allow the company to benefit from legal, financial and commercial expertise in Amsterdam, according to a person familiar with the move.
