Terence Lazard is a former professional cricket player, who is recognised for his great success as a businessman and entrepreneur. He is known amongst his peers to be one of the most affluent former cricketers, having left his mark in business as much as in sport.
He is the Seed Investor and largest shareholder of BetKing, one of the leading sports gaming companies in the world that focuses on Africa as one of the fastest growing sports betting brands on the continent.
Terence formed family office KLT Holdings with CEO, Brad Kark, and another high-net-worth entrepreneur alongside a distinctive international bank. The venture capital firm has investments in cannabis, fibre, logistics & fintech, and their property investments include residential, commercial, rural, retail as well as mining and multiple KFC franchises. KLT International is London based and focuses on co-investments in property across Europe and the US as well as private equity investments in Europe. Terence currently has investments in more than 25 businesses.
He is one of the Founders of Squarestone Growth, a property portfolio that specialises in retail property in London. He also established football agency, High Bolt, that was subsequently acquired by the Stellar Group and has investments in 38 Entertainment Group, which specialises in esports.
Retail Mobile Credit Specialists was co-founded by Terence and partially sold to a major telecom organisation with a listed telco specialist acquiring the remainder. He also formed telecom wholesaler, Cell Shack, that was sold to Massmart three years after its inception.
After retiring from his sporting career, he entered the banking and UK Futures market. He went on to establish a treasury management business that focused on Foreign Exchange, debt, and shipping for South African multinationals.
As a professional cricket player, the highlight of his career was scoring 307 runs, which saw him break the South African record.
