Swedish term or phrase: företagssfär
Hello

I was actually trying to translate Wallenburgsfär but I quickly realized I needed first to translate Företagssfär which means:

Företagssfär betecknar ett antal koncerner och enskilda företag som hänger samman genom att en ägare, eller en ägargrupp, har ett väsentligt inflytande i dem.

En företagssfär är till skillnad mot en koncern inget rättsligt definierat begrepp. För en koncern måste en koncernredovisning upprättas vid sidan av moderbolagets redovisning, men för en sfär görs ingen formell ekonomisk redovisning eller registrering. Det är heller inte entydigt vilka företag som ingår i en viss sfär. En företagssfär har ett, eller ibland flera, styrande maktbolag. Ett sådant maktbolag är vanligen, för att kunna hålla samman sfären, ett renodlat förvaltande företag i form av ett investmentbolag eller ett holdingbolag.


So, how would you translate "företagssfär"? Literally "company sphere" but that does not really work in English

"company sphere of influence" is what it means but that does not fit in well with my segments

"Wallenburg contingent"? "Wallenburg controlled companies"? But the Walllenburgs can have a lot of power without having control (a majority of shares)

Any ideas please?

Thanks

holdings


Explanation:
Holdings describes generally companies that are held or part-invested in by a larger concern, investor or investment group. Given that the Swedish uses 'holdingbolag' in its description of what is meant, I thought this could be appropriate. In order to have influence on those holdings they would have to have a certain shareholding. Investopaedia has this definition of 'holdings':

Holdings are the contents of an investment portfolio held by an individual or entity, such as a mutual fund or a pension fund.
