Based in Reading, our portfolio spans the South of England from Bournemouth to Brighton, across Kent and Essex and all the way around the M25 to St Albans.

The LDC team in the South has a wealth of experience in helping management teams grow their business through international expansion, buy and build strategies and organic growth.

Our activity in the South showcases LDC’s ability to provide follow-on funding for acquisitions – having recently supported specialist communications technology provider Babble complete six acquisitions with £9m of follow-on funding during our initial three-year partnership.

We also have significant experience in the technology sector having supported the growth of The Property Software Group before exiting the business to Zoopla for £75m, ByBox where enterprise value doubled and and helping data services provider Clifford Thames internationalise.

We have recently welcomed Phoenix Datacom, James & James, Foundation SP and Aker Systems into our portfolio and are already actively supporting these businesses to enhance market-leading positions, invest in research and development and acquire complimentary businesses.
