The LIA’s portfolio incorporates indirect and direct investments, approximately 40% are deployed through indirect investments in companies, investment funds and portfolios belonging to the Libyan Foreign Investment Company (LAFICO), the Libya Africa Investment Portfolio (LAP), the Long Term Portfolio (LTP), the Oilinvest Group and the Libyan Local Investment & Development Fund (LLIDF). These five subsidiaries report to the Board of Directors at monthly Board Meetings. Although formal meetings may be monthly, the subsidiaries report continuously to the LIA operations team and the executive management.
