Excellence and Elegance
At Legatum, we have a long legacy and deep culture of excellence in investing. Creativity, passion and a relentless focus on results target exceptional returns, while maintaining a sense of refinement in all that we do. We seek to be the best we can be, both in terms of what we do and who we are, knowing that our character will determine our success at work and in life.
The creation of value starts with the right ideas, and requires implementation with discipline and alacrity. Our investment performance is driven by an alchemy of entrepreneurship, hard work, patience and the commitment to invest boldly on the basis of our convictions not our fears. Ultimately, the markets hold us all accountable, for performance is measured on the basis of real outcomes, not merely clever arguments, efforts or intentions.
Leadership is service. Everyone at Legatum is a leader, responsible for their unique contribution toward the success of each other and the Mission. We do not have a “star” culture, but together the team forms a constellation of talent that depends on each other for our mutual success and the legacy we are building together. By taking responsibility for our actions, we maintain a sense of humility and seek to build trust. We share credit when we meet with success and support each other when challenges arise.
Integrity and Trust
Integrity and trust are the foundations of vibrant markets, successful companies and healthy relationships, and are therefore core to our business. At Legatum we have the courage to speak the truth in a constructive manner and aspire to embody the highest standards of ethics, both at work and in our personal lives.
Sanuk - Fun!
Sanuk is a Thai word meaning ‘to have a good time’ or ‘to derive pleasure and joy from something’ – for something to be worthwhile, it ought to be Sanuk! Similarly, at Legatum, if a job is worth doing, it’s worth doing well and with a joyful spirit.
