Background of Lonfin

  • London Finance and Investment Group (Lonfin) is an investment finance and management company with a two-pronged portfolio that focuses on strategic investments in smaller companies and a general portfolio comprising a broad range of investments in major USA, UK and European companies.

  • The company has a long history on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), having been listed since 1924, and also has a listing on the London Stock Exchange.

  • The group’s strategy involves investing in a portfolio of liquid stock market investments, both in equity instruments and bonds, along with other investments in property and physical assets. Strategic investments today include a 43.8% stake in Western Selection and other material interests in food and beverages, natural resources, chemicals and tobacco.

Managerial and office duties are carried out by the company’s subsidiary City Group.

Lonfin Shares Growth Driver

  • Lonfin’s performance can be influenced by overall stock market performance in the short term. In order to ameliorate this risk, the group has a balanced mix between strategic investments and a general portfolio, allowing Lonfin share price to outperform the broader market in the medium to long term and allowing for diversified exposure to international equity markets.

  • The 2015 financial year saw Lonfin buy a larger stake in Finsbury Foods, increasing the company’s overall value by 23%. Strategic investments yielded a 2.7% return, whilst the general portfolio yielded a 2.9% return. Profits improved from a £43 000 loss in 2014 to a £1.9 million profit, also largely due to Lonfin’s committed buy in to Finsbury. Within strategic investments, Western Selection performed well, increasing profits to £2.8 million from £449 000 the previous year, while Finsbury also increased profits from £5 million to £8.9 million.

  • Meanwhile, Lonfin believes that the general portfolio, which comprises 26 different companies, comprises quality companies with good potential to outperform the market. As a result of its positive financial data year-on-year, the live online share price chart shows that Lonfin share price has climbed steadily from around R2 in 2012 to R7.50 by September 2016.
