How did we become

Our history

Established in 2007, Kirk Kapital’s heritage stretches back much further to 1932, when Ole Kirk Christiansen started making wooden toys in his workshop. In 1934, Ole began selling them under the now world-famous name, LEGO.

Today, almost 90 years later, our heritage of imagination and ingenuity is what forms the foundation of Kirk Kapital’s unique business.

Kirk Kapital’s shareholders, the Kirk Johansen family, are Ole Kirk Christiansen’s descendants.

As well as managing the family office services for our shareholders, we specialise in financial investments and strategic minority investments in tomorrow’s best companies, under the motto: We invest, collaborate and create.
