In a world of tremendous need, Legatum is selective in its investment approach. Each opportunity is carefully evaluated to maximise the impact we can make according to the following investment principles:

Community Based

Legatum prefers to support Community Based Organisations (CBOs) where local knowledge, families, and real demands can guide resource allocation better than the perceptions of outsiders.

The Multiplier Effect

Capital has the power to effect enormous life change and therefore its stewardship is a substantial responsibility. Legatum seeks initiatives where financial, intellectual and human capital can be multiplied.

Simplicity

From experience, solutions that are simple and understandable lead to the greatest impact.

Pathfinding

Legatum explores new ideas but employs time-tested approaches where appropriate.

Results

Legatum takes a results-oriented approach and rigorously monitors all its grant investments. Resources are reallocated from under-performing projects to those that are delivering results.

Sustainability

Commercial solutions are preferred wherever possible.

Objectivity

Although giving is inherently an emotionally rewarding and joyful experience, rigorous and objective analysis results in the most effective capital allocation decisions.
