A history which is written every day…

…for two centuries already


Our history in nutshell (1804 – Today)

The roots of the public limited company Brederode, specializing in international risk capital investments, reach deep and are closely linked to the defining moments in the economic history of Belgium and its former colony.

Origins of the name Brederode

The company is named after the street of the same name where Cotonco had decided to construct a building to house its European staff and to locate its registered office. This project was entrusted to an ad-hoc subsidiary which when founded in 1957 took the name Immobilière Brederode. This name was later changed into Financière Brederode, and later still in into its present, simpler name.
