Based in Reading, LDC in the South has built trusted partnerships across the South of England – from Bournemouth to Brighton, across Kent and Essex and all the way around the M25 to St Albans.

LDC was named ‘Private Equity Firm of the Year’ at the Business Magazine’s Thames Valley Deals Awards in 2022 and won ‘Large Deal of the Year’ in 2023. We’re proud of our long-term support for Berkshire-based Camp Mohawk to provide a place for children and young people with special needs to learn and achieve their potential.
