In May 2019 LDC invested significantly alongside senior managers in MSQ Partners, one of the UK’s fastest growing marketing communications groups, in a deal that values the business at around £37.5million. 

It will enable the group to accelerate the roll-out of its successful multi-disciplinary model beyond London and support the continued growth of its individual agencies.

Our new partnership with LDC will enable us to embark on the next phase of our growth journey, giving us the resources to further invest in our individual agency's capabilities and accelerate the roll-out of our multi-disciplinary model internationally, whilst retaining the employee-ownership ethos that has been key to our success. The team at LDC understands our vision, and with their financial firepower and strategic support they are the perfect partner to help us reach our long-term growth objectives.
