Reinet Investments S.C.A. is a Luxembourg-based investment vehicle that was demerged from the Swiss luxury goods company Richemont on 20 October 2008.[1] It is listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE), and at 2014 is the second-largest component of the LuxX Index.


Upon formation, Reinet controlled €350m in cash, €50m in miscellaneous investments, and a 4% stake (84.3 million shares) in British American Tobacco (BAT). On the first day of Reinet trading, BAT's share price opened at £17.31,[2] valuing Reinet's stake at £1.46bn (€1.88bn).[3] The formation of Reinet allowed the Rupert family to spin off all non-luxuries related activities, and allow Richemont to focus purely on its core investments.[4]

In January 2009, Reinet entered into negotiations to purchase the private equity business of Lehman Brothers,[5] which is now known as Trilantic Capital Partners.

Investment Strategy[edit]

Reinet states that its investment strategy is to take a long-term view of investment opportunities, to invest in a wide range of asset classes (including listed and unlisted equities, bonds, real estate and derivative instruments), while emphasis will at all times be on the protection of shareholders’ capital.[6]

The company does not publicise a list of its investments other than in BAT.
