LDC & ME

Investing for the Future

Enabling growth in a single business or across a year of investments is one thing but sustaining this throughout a decade is quite something else.

We have created impact across the last ten years that includes supporting our portfolio companies to create more than 10,000 jobs and adding an extra £2.1bn to UK GDP.

We are committed to extending this impact into the future through our ESG commitments and programmes such as our partnership with The Prince’s Trust to support up to 10,000 young entrepreneurs over the next five years.
