Ocean Wilsons (Investments) Limited

The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ocean Wilsons Holdings Limited (OWHL) and was formed in 2000 to diversify away from its then sole reliance on the Brazilian maritime services undertaken by the Parent entity's other wholly owned subsidiary, Wilson Sons. In 2007 OWHL realised a substantial sum from the successful IPO of Wilson Sons which saw OWHL reduce its holding in Wilson Sons from 100% to 58.25%. A significant portion of those IPO funds were channelled into OWIL. OWIL invests in a portfolio of emerging market investments and provides OWHL with a counterbalance to the fluctuations of its investment in Wilsons Sons.
