We believe Lebanon to be a country best defined by a global community of more than 16 million people spread over 6 continents. Beginning with finance, a discipline anchored in our history, our vision is to create a shared platform that transcends borders and affiliations, encouraging all Lebanese around the world to support each other, nurture the upcoming generations, drive positive change and promote cross border equity for our nation.
LIFE provides a platform to channel the influence of Lebanese finance executives worldwide in order to establish stronger bonds, nurture the next generation and promote Lebanon.
