About FFI Holdings PLC
FFI Holdings PLC is the holding company of Film Finances Inc., a leading provider of diversified services across the entertainment industry. FFI was formerly focused on completion contracts to the entertainment industry, and over successive decades, has now grown globally to become a trusted, iconic brand at the centre of the film industry.
Founded in the 1950s, FFI soon established itself as the world leader in completion guarantees to the entertainment industry, offering assurance to financiers that productions will be completed on time and on budget. These guarantees serve to offload risks to production budgets and timelines for financiers, as well as for FFI through long-standing insurance relationships.
FFI listed on the AIM market in June 2017 and has diversified its business beyond completion contracts to provide services across the broader entertainment landscape. These include pre- and post-production services, general risk insurance, content investment and content distribution. FFI is also present in China, where it provides a growing range of entertainment-related services including completion contracts to the domestic film making industry.
Headquartered in Los Angeles, USA, FFI has 11 offices globally, including in London, Stockholm, Toronto, New York, Cape Town, Cologne and Shanghai.
