Who We Are
LIG & Company (LIG & Co.) is a global alternative investment management firm that manages assets across a variety of industries including private equity, hedge funds, healthcare, real estate and financial services.
We operate our businesses in an integrated manner which we believe distinguishes us from other alternative investment managers. We have applied this investment philosophy by deploying capital across the balance sheet of industry leading businesses, and seeking to create value for our investors throughout economic cycles. Our investment professionals frequently collaborate and share information across disciplines including market insight, management, banking and consultant contacts as well as potential investment opportunities, which contributes to our library of industry knowledge and enables us to invest successfully across a company’s capital structure. The firm's integrated platform and the experience of our investment team have enabled us to deliver strong long-term investment performance in our funds throughout a range of economic cycles.
Our investment approach is value-oriented, focusing on industries in which we have considerable knowledge, and emphasizing downside protection and the preservation of capital. We are frequently contrarian in our investment approach, which is reflected in a number of ways, including:
our willingness to invest in industries that our competitors typically avoid;
the often complex structures we employ in some of our investments, including our willingness to pursue difficult corporate carve-out transactions;
our experience investing during periods of uncertainty or distress in the economy or financial markets;
our orientation towards sole-sponsored transactions; and
our willingness to undertake transactions that have substantial business, regulatory or legal complexity.
We have successfully applied this investment philosophy since the founding of LIG, allowing us to identify what we believe to be attractive investment opportunities, deploy capital across the balance sheet of industry leading businesses, and create value for our investors throughout economic cycles.
