Swedish West India Company
Between 1786 and 1805, the company operated from the Swedish island of Saint-Barthélemy.
The company was a private enterprise with royal monopoly on all Swedish trade via Saint Barthélemy. Three quarters of profits went to the company, one quarter to the Swedish state.
The company was the main operator in the Swedish slave trade.
Other Swedish chartered companies
The company should not be confused with the 17th-century Swedish South Company, also called New Sweden Company, best known for establishing New Sweden in the Delaware region, which operated between 1638 and 1655.
