The Company’s shareholders

Affidea’s success is due to its commitment to using the best technology available, employing the best local experts in their field, and ultimately doing the best for the patient. However, it is also due to exemplary corporate governance. Affidea is wholly owned by trusts associated with the Bertarelli family. These interests are managed by their business enterprise, Waypoint Capital.

Waypoint is a business enterprise for the managers and advisers of the funds and investments associated with the Bertarelli family. The group is active in two areas: life sciences and asset management, including real estate. Chaired by Ernesto Bertarelli, Waypoint is headquartered in Geneva, with offices in London, Jersey, Boston and Luxembourg. Visit for more information.
