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