HISTORY

We are a highly diversified group of Argentine-capital companies with a global presence. Our founders and shareholders, biochemist Silvia Gold and psychiatrist Hugo Sigman, established in 1977 the first company of what today is Grupo Insud as an expansion of the family enterprise Roberto Gold funded  in Argentina in 1943. They started working in the pharmaceutical business, the Group’s main activity, inspired by Roberto Gold. With time, Silvia and Hugo strengthened their activities in the pharmaceutical industry and expanded to a diversity of areas, including agribusiness, cultural industries, and nature and design, which today form the business ecosystem we work in.
