At LGL we believe

At LGL we believe in being opportunistic in our investment focus. While this has recently led us into financial technology, lending, banking and e-commerce, we also have a history in the more traditional sectors such as manufacturing.

The Willett family

The Willett family has experience investing in, and operating, businesses in the USA, Mexico, UK, Europe, Asia and Africa. These range from early stage start-ups to businesses with over $500m turnover.

Early Stage start ups TO > $500M turnover

We look to leverage our personal networks and those of our clients to source exceptional investment opportunities.
