Rights & Brands was formed with a strong belief that the brands within the Nordic cultural inheritance has a big international potential. Just three years after opening our doors, we have a network of over 40 agents and 900 clients internationally. Rights & Brands was also recently crowned the number one licencing agency in Europe by the 2021 license Global-report. The company has enjoyed massive success with the development of the Moomin-universe, which today has a turnover of over 750 million EUR globally in 2021. We aim to double this wihtin the next five years. The Nodics are responsible for about 45% of the total turnover. Japan is our second biggest market. Rights and Brands is expecting a significant growth over the next few years in countries outside of the Nordics, and specifically in Asia.
