Owned and operated by Chicago's wealthy Pritzker family, H Group Holding is the investment holding company for a slowly dwindling number of assets. The Pritzkers once owned a vast empire (worth some $20 billion). However, since the death of Jay Pritzker in 1999, family squabbles over its vast fortune have led the Pritzkers to slowly break up the empire and sell billions of dollars worth of assets. Cofounder and brother Robert Pritzker died in 2011. The family still owns some 75% of luxury hotel operator Hyatt, which has more than 550 owned and franchised hotels worldwide. Other H Group holdings include property investor Pritzker Realty and a minority stake in the Royal Caribbean cruise ship line.
