Investments

Besides the ownership of LEO Pharma, the LEO Foundation holds financial assets of approximately DKK 18 billion.

The main objectives of the investments are to ensure continued financial capability to support LEO Pharma’s long-term continuation and strategic development, as well as provide funds for the LEO Foundation’s philanthropic activities. In line with these objectives, we strive to generate the best possible returns while retaining a sensible, well-balanced risk profile.

Our investments are diversified across different asset classes with a main focus on liquid assets such as listed shares, government bonds, covered bonds and credit. Furthermore, a minor part of the portfolio can be allocated to more illiquid alternative investments such as structured credit, private equity, infrastructure or real estate.

The Foundation’s financial assets all held in the wholly-owned subsidiary, LEO Holding, where a small team of highly experienced investment professionals is focused on creating value through top-down asset allocation, manager selection and the selection of alternative investment components. All assets are currently managed externally by professional asset managers.
