Our Goal - Libyan Investment Authority

Investing to improve the resilience of the Libyan economy and the wellbeing of all Libyans

The Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) is organised with a clear purpose that guides our governance, strategy and investment approach.
Our vision
Our focus is on our long-term strategic vision: to more efficiently manage Libya’s wealth for future generations, and effectively contribute to the sustainable development and diversification of income sources.
Our purpose
The LIA’s assets belong to the people of Libya. Our purpose is to invest the assets generated from Libyan resources wisely and, through prudent management, preserve and grow the fund to the benefit of current and future Libyan generations.
We take our responsibility to all Libyans very seriously. Our actions are always informed by a clear mandate: to secure the long-term future of generations to come.

The LIA has three primary objectives:

  • Fiscal stabilisation

    Provide stability against volatile oil revenues and government budget shortfalls.

  • Develop and diversify the national economy

    Create a diversified source of wealth for Libya’s future generations by investing internationally with a sustainable, long-term view.

  • Secure resources for future generations

    Stimulate Libya’s economy through major, transformational private sector projects, to preserve and grow sources of wealth for the benefit of current and future generations.

    The LIA strives to rebuild Libya for the benefit of the Libyan people and future generations. 

    We consistently review our investment practices and activities to ensure that they are in line with best-in-class international sovereign wealth funds, to more effectively manage the assets that we have been entrusted with.

    our vision

    Our vision is to be an exemplary sovereign wealth fund in terms of performance, impact, and integrity. Our immediate priority is to drive forward our ongoing transformation, to improve governance, transparency and accountability across our organisation.

    The LIA will continue to play an active role over many years to improve the resilience of the Libyan economy, and enhance the wellbeing of the Libyan people.
