Underpinning all that we do

At LDC we have been partnering with ambitious management teams for more than 35 years, helping them to grow their business and increase shareholder value.

While our work with each business is different, there is always one constant - an approach that champions ambition and partnership. We recognise that this underpins success and places ambition at the heart of everything we do.

Backing Business Ambition 2017

From June we will be showcasing some of Britain’s most inspiring companies – the untold success stories of growth, exporting, leadership and innovation. We will profile these businesses across the UK through regional media partnerships, with the campaign culminating in a showcase in the Daily Telegraph.
