The Italian investment company EXOR is by far the largest Italian company in terms of turnover. Legally, however, it is now headquartered in the Netherlands, but due to its history, ownership structure and owned companies, it does not make it less Italian in the strict sense. EXOR is the largest shareholder of the car manufacturers Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ferrari and, among others, the reinsurer PartnerRe, the magazine The Economist, and football club Juventus Turin. In turn, the Italian Agnelli family is the largest shareholder, hence the owner of EXOR and one of the richest families in Italy. Giovanni Agnelli once initiated the successful family dynasty in 1899 through the founding of FIAT.
