LDC has TMT Sector in its sights

In 2011, LDC announced its plans to invest up to £200million in UK TMT companies with growth potential.

LDC committed to invest £200million to the TMT sector as the LDC London team has identified the sector as one of the key areas most likely to benefit as the economic recovery gathers pace. Since this commitment LDC London is accumulating a very strong TMT portfolio with various high-growth companies ranging across public relations, TV production and cloud computing.

TMT is one of the most dynamic and fast-moving sectors and a range of factors are helping to drive growth and innovation. The emergence of new products and services, computing in the cloud, tablet computing, a greater variety of software as a service are all driving expansion and also, to a certain extent, consolidation as bigger players try and assemble the right mix of new services and products.
