We are a partnership of successful entrepreneurs and international businesspeople
L1 is built on the expertise of our people – from our executive, to our investment teams and world-class advisory board members.
We have recruited world class CEO’s and sector investment teams and advisory boards to invest at scale.
Our People - Investment Teams
The investment teams in L1 Energy, L1 Technology, L1 Health and L1 Retail put forward investment recommendations which are scrutinised thoroughly before they are presented to the L1 Holdings and L1 Investment Holdings Boards for an investment decision.
They work actively with the management of the companies we invest in, providing strategic input and monitoring the operational performance of each portfolio. They are responsible for agreeing strategy, finance, capital allocation, performance management and top team talent management with their company’s management teams.
Our People – Advisory Boards
To challenge our investment teams’ recommendations and to challenge our assumptions, we have recruited sector investment Advisory Boards consisting of internationally respected chief executives, chairman and entrepreneurs.
Each Advisory Board provides advice on whether to proceed with a particular opportunity in its sector. The Advisory Boards play an essential role, not only in our investment governance process, but work alongside our investment teams, interacting with their company management teams.
L1 Treasury’s investment parameters are set by the Investment and Risk Committee, delegated by the L1 Treasury Board within a framework approved by the Board of L1 Investment Holdings. Individual investment decisions are then taken by a separate L1 Treasury team headed by Yves Leysen, the CIO of L1 Treasury.
