English translation:Holding Company
Explanation:
I would suggest that it is a direct translation from English.

A holding company consists of a number of individual companies 'held' by one overall head company; it could also be expressed as a 'conglomerate' and possibly 'parent company' but there are probably distinctions between the terms.

I don't think you can go wrong with what is obviously a direct translation.

Explanation:
but there are groups in which the holding company is a minority controller of shares, so it would be best to find out exactly what the participation is.
