LOM is majority owned by the Lines family, a Bermudian family who trace their roots on the island back for many generations. Mr. Donald P. Lines, the family patriarch, agreed to serve as Chairman of the LOM Group from its founding in 1992 until retiring in 2014. Mr. Lines was well respected at the highest levels in international finance and banking. He is credited as one of the architects of Bermuda’s development into a prosperous global financial centre. Mr. Lines served as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Bank of Bermuda Limited, retiring in 1994 after 25 years of service. Under his guidance the Bank established a global network of offices including Bermuda Trust (Far East) Limited, a major trust and custody operation in Hong Kong. The Bank was purchased by HSBC in 2004 for US$1.3 billion.
Mr. Scott G.S. Lines, CEO and Founder has managed strategic and daily operations of LOM Group since inception, assuming Chairmanship from his father in 2014. LOM’s initial offering of stock brokerage services and capital raising for venture companies was expanded in 1995 with the introduction of its asset management division and a US dollar Money Market Fund. Over the ensuing decades the Asset Management group’s product offering has grown to offer tailored discretionary management, seven global and specialty mutual funds and three money markets funds. A selection of the LOM Funds have received top ratings from Morning Star year after year and are best in class against peers. LOM Corporate Finance Limited was incorporated in 1998 to finance and close capital investments in growing companies, and provide listing and sponsoring services for international companies on the Bermuda Stock Exchange. LOM has acted as the listing sponsor for many blue chip insurance companies, including Aspen Re, White Mountain Insurance, Montpelier Re and Partner Re. LOM itself was listed on the Bermuda Stock Exchange July 2001.

We believe that your investment profile should be as individual as you are, so we employ a first class team of professional traders, financial advisors and analysts who are on hand to answer your questions and service your requirements.
Our organisation is guided by five core principles:
Fiduciary Responsibility: The firm maintains a very conservative balance sheet and has extensive measures and systems in place to ensure the protection of your assets.
Privacy: We take our clients’ security and privacy seriously. We go to great lengths to safeguard your assets and your information from the minute you are accepted as a client.
Objectivity and Independence: We act in your best interests and will provide independent advice; we are not influenced by the interests of a parent bank or investment dealer.
Professional Service: Your dedicated private client relationship management team or broker will provide personal attention to your financial and account administration needs.
Continuity: The Lines Family have been in the private wealth, trust and banking business for over 6 decades; LOM at its roots is a Family Office. We look at every new relationship as the start of a long-term, inter-generational relationship. These relationships are our core business.
