OUR
HISTORY

Rosewood Private Investments is wholly owned by the Caroline Hunt Trust Estate and the private equity arm of the Rosewood Corporation.

First established in 1935 by Haroldson Lafayette “H.L.” Hunt, Jr., Rosewood has evolved over generations by developing and acquiring companies that are leaders in the natural resources, real estate, manufacturing, and industrial sectors.

H.L.
HUNT

H.L. Hunt was a prolific business owner and entrepreneur who began with ventures in agriculture and moved on to oil and gas exploration and pioneering production of one of the largest oil deposits in the world. He ultimately secured title to most of the East Texas Oil Field, pioneering one of the largest deposits of oil.

CAROLINE
ROSE HUNT

Hunt’s second daughter, Caroline Rose Hunt was born in 1923 and was an entrepreneur in her own right. After raising her five children, she went on to found Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, as well as establish an international corporation with subsidiaries in real estate development, oil and gas, and a number of other diversified businesses.

Mrs. Hunt passed away in 2018. Her children are still active in the business and carry on with her legacy and work.

“Some would attribute our success to luck, but it really boils down to hard work, high standards, and sincere relationships." – Caroline Rose Hunt
