The UK’s leading mid-market private equity house

We’re not your typical private equity house. LDC has a unique model to match the ambitions, values and locations of the management teams we back.

We’ve developed a deep understanding of business through our 40 years of investment experience and our 90-strong portfolio across every sector and region of the UK economy.

Backed by our sole funder Lloyds Banking Group, we have £1.2bn to invest in UK mid-market businesses over the next three years.

  • WE INVEST IN GROWTH - As part of Lloyds Banking Group, we have £1.2bn to invest in UK SMEs in the next three years.
  • WE UNDERSTAND BUSINESS - With 90 companies from every sector of the UK economy in our portfolio, we know an ambitious business leader when we meet one.
  • WE ARE WHERE YOU ARE - Our teams are based in 12 locations across the UK, which gives us a different perspective to other private equity houses.
  • WE ACTIVELY ADD VALUE - We help increase shareholder value for our portfolio companies through our Value Creation Partners team.
