The Axel and Margaret Ax:son Johnson Foundations

The Axel and Margaret Ax:son Johnson Foundations were established in 1947 by Consul General Axel Ax:son Johnson (1876-1958) and his wife Margaret (1887-1966). Today, the foundations are Nordstjernan’s largest owners, with 99 percent of the voting rights and 86 percent of the share capital in the company.

The primary objective of the Axel and Margaret Ax:son Johnson Foundation for Public Benefit, which holds 85 percent of the share capital and 5 percent of the voting rights in the company, is to support scientific research. Since 1999, the foundation has elected to support the liberal arts and social sciences.

The objective of the Axel and Margaret Ax:son Johnson Foundation, which holds 2 percent of the share capital and 95 percent of the voting rights in the company, is to serve as a long-term owner for Nordstjernan and to support the descendants of Axel and Margaret Ax:son Johnson.
