Organisation

Our desire to contribute to the creation of a more prosperous world doesn’t just shape what we do, it defines who we are as an organisation.

The Organisation

Legatum was founded as a company that could use its ideas, energy and capital to support people all across the world to do well.

Since beginning in 2006, we have created a diverse collection of ventures across a range of different sectors in pursuit of this ambition.

Some of these ventures carry our name, others don’t. Some we are still involved in today, others have gone on to operate independently. Some projects began and then ended, others went on to be scaled up. Some organisations work on their own, others collaborate with one another. All of them reflect the ideas and values that form the core of Legatum and the difference we hope to make in the world.

The Prosperity Index

‘Prosper’ comes from the latin ‘prosperare’ meaning ‘cause to succeed’ or ‘render happy’. The Latin is traditionally regarded as coming from Old Latin ‘prospere’ or ‘for hope’. This word, ‘Prosperity’, encapsulates both wealth and wellbeing: the range of ingredients which make for a life well lived.

Right from the start, we instinctively felt it was at the heart of what we were seeking to achieve as an organisation, but we knew we needed to find away to measure it. In 2006, together with several Oxford professors, we set out to define the term, and in doing so produced a methodology that would allow global prosperity to be measured, tracked and improved upon.

That original small project has since gone on to become The Legatum Prosperity Index. A global tool led by the Legatum Institute that tracks prosperity based on a series of different pillars across 167 countries. It provides a metrics-led ‘North Star’ for all of us around the world who are working towards the goal of increasing prosperity, and expresses our core belief as an organisation that individually we can all make a difference, and collectively we can help one another to do well.

Active portfolio

The projects and initiatives within our portfolio go through three stages: ‘originate, incubate, scale’. At any one time we will be investing our expertise and capital in nurturing a collection of ventures, each at different stages of this journey, that all support our aim of increasing prosperity.

As ventures develop, as the world around us changes, and as new opportunities arise, our portfolio evolves. Here’s how it looks today.
