History

François Pinault launched Artémis in 1992 with the investment of his personal holding in PPR, the group he founded in 1963, and which was renamed as Kering in 2013. The initial goal was to use a lightweight structure through which to invest free of any restriction in terms of industry sector or physical location.

In addition to Kering, Artémis has spent the last three decades acquiring and developing a broad diversity of assets.
