History of Finsilva
Finsilva’s history in forest property is rooted in Gustaf Adolf Serlachius’s forests from the 19th century. The forests were merged with Metsäliiton Teollisuus Ltd. in the 1980s. The forests were first incorporated into Forestia Ltd. and then merged with Finsilva Ltd., founded in 2005.
Metsäliitto Cooperative and MTK (The Central Union of Agricultural Producers and Forest Owners) ownership of Finsilva lasted until February 2022 when their remaining shares were sold to the forest fund of Dasos Capital Oy Ltd. Finsilva is currently owned by Dasos forest funds (Finnish fund management company) and pension insurance company Ilmarinen.
Metsäliitto Cooperative remains Finsilva’s main partner in forest trade, forestry, and real estate development. Finsilva is a shareholder in Metsäliitto Cooperative.
