Money in the bank
For many years, the focus was around the store’s fortunes, but last summer the Labor leader chose to put his wealth in the bank. Avoid focusing too much around it.
The store’s fortunes were inherited after the sale of Judul, a family-owned kiln manufacturer until the 1970s. In recent years, he has allowed DNB and Danske Bank to manage money through funds, but now have all the assets in their bank account.
In addition, last year he divided the inheritance by a quarter for his children.
Vestre’s fortune comes from furniture sales. Minister of Commerce and Industry Vestre AS owns 70 percent of the furniture manufacturer, while his mother Elisabeth Preus Vestre owns the remaining 30 percent. In addition, the Minister has been the General Manager of the Committee.
The furniture group had sales of NOK 214.6 million last year, up from NOK 202.5 million in 2019. According to the income statement and balance sheet previously mentioned by Netavicen.
At the end of last year, the Westray Group had NOK 222 million book values. This includes 57 million buildings and land, and may have added value here. At the end of last year, the group had NOK 55 million in the bank, indicating good cash flow.
Note: Tax figures do not show the full actual salary, but after net income (normal income) deductions, but special deductions and net wealth (taxable wealth) and before assessed tax. So the actual salary is higher than what is shown from the tax lists.
