Power, Pargesa and Gesca: Pargesa


This page considers the Pargesa group, which until 2006 had a 25% stake in Bertelsmann and which retains other substantial interests.


There has been no major English-language study of Albert Frere or Pargesa. There is an account in Jose-Alain Fralon's Albert Frere: Le Fils Du Marchand De Clous (Paris: Fayard 1997).
