Our Values

From our founding, we have held the conviction that there is a different way for an investment firm to create value. We work differently, identifying fundamentals that drive value, partnering with management teams to unlock growth, and aligning our interests with those of our investors for lasting impact.

Lionhead is founded on six core values which define our culture and guide our decision making. We consistently adhere to these values in everything that we do.

Our reputation and capital are always on the line.
We are committed long-term investors and we invest only where we have the conviction and the will to stay the path.
We always strive to be the best at what we do. We measure ourselves by the results we deliver.
We value debate and recognize the benefit of different opinions and perspectives.
As stewards of our investors’ capital, integrity is central to our decision making process. We will never compromise our principles for expediency or convenience.
We believe that deciding what not to do is as important as deciding what to do. By focussing on the firm’s key priorities, we are able to cut out the noise and say no when it matters most.
