LDC has a successful track record in the technology sector. Since 2012, we have invested over £650m into more than 35 fast growing technology businesses, backing management teams to achieve their ambitions and completing more than twice the number of investments of our closest competitors.

The technology industry is one of the UK’s most successful sectors and is a core focus for LDC. We bring deep sector specialism in software, FinTech, EdTech and Human Capital Management (HCM), as well as a range of technology enabled services.

We have completed 21 new investments in technology businesses in the past five years and 14 exits. We have reliably invested throughout the economic cycle – including through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Our returns are strong, increasing enterprise value by an average of 331% and generating an average money multiple return of more than 3.6x.

We work in partnership with technology businesses to support a range of growth strategies – whether international expansion, new product development, scaling organic growth through sales and marketing, or buy-and-build M&A. The scale of our portfolio and our experience backing technology management teams means we help to add value and maximise growth opportunities.

Our current portfolio includes 19 technology companies.

“For us it was the personal relationship with our investment director and the broader team. We wanted to work closely with them and we did just that.”
