unigroup (holdings) Ltd.

unigroup (holdings) Ltd. is a privately held limited liability company, with registered offices in Willemstad, Curaçao. The company has been originally organized in the Isle of Man in 1982, when several existing activities and corporate entities were consolidated into one group. The main interests of the group are organized in a number of divisions. Each division concentrates on an industrial sector, or a group of tasks, which require common abilities, similar organizational structures or which has in some other aspect a congruence of requirements.


The management of the company has a fundamental believe in the growing globalization of economic activities. Hence all its staff is multi lingual and has had working experience in multiple countries. It is the management's corporate philosophy that only ongoing operational exposure will maintain the necessary closeness of the company's managers to the market place which today's global exposure requires. As a consequence, management has a strong commitment to keep a minimal corporate staff and almost everyone is directly involved with the company's customers . Thus, apart from devoting some effort to managing corporate tasks, all staff members remain directly and continuously involved in operational activities.

The unigroup companies mission, in summary, is:

  • To strive for total customer satisfaction by giving clients the best possible advise and the highest quality of products;

  • To offer clients a range of global cultural abilities and with the help of multi disciplinary teams to provide solutions which results in a genuine and noticeable improvement in the way a client conducts his business affairs;

  • To treat each client as an individual with unique requirements, calling for individualized solutions;

  • To continuously create innovative new products and services which address the growing global business information requirements;

  • To attract some of the brightest and most capable people and to channel and stimulate their creative capacities in a direction that benefits both our clients and the people working for our company.

    A Word from the Management

    Our company has grown by leaps and bounds, during the last few years and not even the current economic downturn has slowed this growth much.

    The major growth areas were Brazil, Canada and China, which all started as small entrepreneurial investments, almost 36 years ago. Today, our companies are strong players in these markets and we have a major presence in the countries. We have always been cautious in combining growth with continued low leverage. This has paid off, and we will be looking forward to continued growth.

    Much of our strength comes from the excellent people we employ. We continue to invest in our local and international employees and executives and try to keep, in every country, a mix that ensures, we can reach our goals.

    We continue to maintain our long term goals and try not to be sidetracked by the risks and the significant economic fluctuations that occur today. Our aims remain to be environmentally friendly, and to deliver value for money to the customer, while at the same time, watching our risks and maintaining high profitability.

    This coming year, we will accept six new ships that have already been booked for long term charters. Similarly, the 27 large aircraft which we will receive, have been placed on long term charters with airlines. We have also converted options for another 25 aircraft to be delivered during 2016 to 2020.

    Despite the general economic difficulties, our commercial real estate projects in Canada, Uruguay, Brazil and Argentina are being completed on time and have all been leased to clients long before they have been finished.

    We look forward to a year of healthy and continued growth.
