Two families, Rothschild and Lambert, are relatives to each other.

In 2001 Bertelsmann bought 30% of RTL Group from GBL, bringing its stake to 67% in the company, which owns television shows such as "Baywatch."

Shareholdings as of 30 September 2015 were:

GBL aims to become a core shareholder and, for mid-sized, private companies, to possibly take a majority stake. In either case, its ambition is to find new opportunities that could become “an incubator” of strategic assets over the long term. Ultimately, this investment category could represent between 10% and 15% of the group’s adjusted net assets. GBL therefore continued to purchase Umicore shares in 2014 and 2015 and became its largest shareholder with a 13.1% interest at 30 June 2015. In March 2015, GBL also became the main Ontex shareholder following the acquisition of 7.4% of the capital of the group. In July 2015, GBL announced that it had crossed the 3% threshold in the capital of adidas.
