Strategic and Management Policies.


Slovenian Sovereign Holding (SSH) was established to manage the State's capital investments in a concentrated, transparent, professional and independent manner.

SSH also exercises the powers, competences, rights and obligations which used to be carried out by Slovenska odškodninska družba (SOD) and which relate to the settlement of liabilities to beneficiaries under several laws, and manages the assets, in particular real estate and receivables, of the Bad Asset Management Company (BAMC) which has been recently merged with SSH.
