LDC is an active supporter of business communities across the North East and Scotland. We established our on-the-ground presence in Scotland in 2008 and opened an office Newcastle in 2020 – becoming the first mid-market private equity business to have a permanent base in the North East.

We’re passionate about the communities we work in – our team all live and work locally. We’re proud to support The Greggs Foundation, a network of school Breakfast Clubs across the North East and Scotland, providing nutritious meals for children who might otherwise go without.



Hear the team at property tech firm iamproperty discuss how their partnership and relationship with LDC enabled transformational growth.

What really attracted us to LDC was the breadth of sectors they invest into and the relationship we had built with Gareth Marshall. We thank LDC for their guidance, which has supported the business through a very exciting period of growth and development.”
