For more than 20 years, in the North West, LDC has backed ambitious management teams across Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire, Merseyside, and Cumbria from our Manchester office. We’ve built trusted relationships with some of the North West’s most exciting businesses.

Our local approach has been recognised with award wins including ‘Private Equity Team of the Year’. And we’re proud to support the community through our charity partnerships. LDC was named one of Wood Street Mission’s ‘Heroes’ for donating children’s books, clothing and other essential items to support children and families living on low incomes across the region.



With LDC’s support, MSQ completed five acquisitions, expanded its leadership team and doubled revenue and headcount.



“In our first year with LDC, we achieved some incredible successes.” Janette Martin, CEO, Talos360
