A '''holding company''' is a [[company (law)|company]] that owns other companies' [[Shares outstanding|outstanding stock]]. A holding company usually does not produce goods or services itself; rather, its purpose is to own shares of other companies to form a [[corporate group]]. Holding companies allow the reduction of [[risk]] for the owners and can allow the ownership and control of a number of different companies.
