Fast growing business

International SOS was founded in 1985 by Arnaud Vaissié and Dr. Pascal Rey-Herme, who recognised a great demand for international standards of healthcare among the expatriate community and international organisations in Asia. In the years that followed, the Company has witnessed fast organic growth, gradually expanding its operations across the world. In recent years, it further broadened its service offering through several strategic acquisitions and partnerships (including Control Risks, MedAire and VIPDesk, amongst others).  

Partnership with the founders

In 2007, Cobepa first invested in International SOS, providing the Founders with an adequate solution to continue the growth of the company with the support of a long term and independent shareholder. Cobepa currently holds a 13.6% equity stake in the company.
