LDC launched in the South West in 2008 with an office in Bristol, extending our footprint further in 2016 with the launch of our Cardiff office – becoming the only on-the-ground mid-market private equity business in Wales. 

The team has strong personal ties to the region and are proud to provide funding and volunteer at important local causes including Young Lives vs. Cancer, The Grand Appeal in Bristol and FareShare Cymru and Cardiff’s Ty Hafan.
