We are a long-term investment company that is active across the globe from its offices in Rotterdam. We started our investment activities in 1989, after the sale of the last remaining shipping activities of the Holland Amerika Lijn (previously the Nederlands Amerikaansche Stoomvaart Maatschappij).
HAL solely invests its own (family) capital, a proposition that allows us to focus on long term value creation without pre-defined exit strategies. Our unique investment strategy has given us the opportunity to add significant long term value to our investments, some of which have been in our portfolio for over 25 years.
Our commitment to long term value creation has resulted in a versatile portfolio with companies that have leading positions in various industries across the world, including Europe as well as emerging markets such as Latin America, India, Turkey and China. Our portfolio includes large interests in listed companies such as Boskalis, Vopak, SBM Offshore and GrandVision. Furthermore, we have majority interests in leading businesses such as FD Mediagroep (media), Koninklijke Ahrend (office furniture), Atlas (offshore staffing), Coolblue (online retail) and many more.

Two rounds of case interviews with seniors of our investment team will then follow. In case both rounds are concluded successfully, a job offer is made. In the interviews, we use cases representative for our investment practice, taking both the strategic and financial perspective. We appreciate your thorough preparation and strong motivation.
