Travel & Leisure Private Equity

Investing in leading experience providers

David Taylor, CEO
Neilson Active Holidays

LDC has more than 35 years of experience in the travel and leisure sector – with current investments including the Zip World, Away Resorts and restaurant group D&D London.

In the last five years alone, we’ve invested more than £250m to back the management teams of live events companies, holiday park operators and international travel companies to help them develop strategies that set them apart.

Our recent success stories include a transformative partnership with The NEC Group and the growth of Pure Cottages Group which tripled the number of properties it managed during our partnership.

Consumers are more discerning than ever with their leisure time and competition is intensifying on the high street and online to attract footfall and clicks.

We have helped businesses across travel and leisure to drive investment in digitisation, deliver domestic and international roll-outs and support product and service development.

LDC has a successful track record in the travel industry, but most importantly the investment team bought into our vision and growth strategy completely."
