LDC in the North West
Since launching in the North West in 2000, LDC has been at the forefront of the region’s private equity market having invested more than £725million to support 60 of the North West’s most ambitious management teams.
Our commitment to delivering value has enabled us to generate proceeds of more than £320million between 2015 and 2017, and we have built some of the country’s fastest growing companies across diverse sectors ranging from healthcare to manufacturing and technology.
The impact on the economy is tangible – our North West portfolio has collective revenues in excess of £335million and supports 2,800 jobs. Based at 82 King Street in the former home of the Bank of England in Manchester, the team is led by Head of the North West Jonathan Bell.
This year, LDC has partnered with the Manchester Evening News to help uncover the region’s most ambitious and successful firms as part of the MEN Business of the Year Awards. This includes sponsoring the Henry Mitchell Prize to celebrate the one business that has made a lasting contribution to the region and has bold ambitions for the future.
The team will be meeting with business leaders in the search to uncover the region’s most ambitious businesses over the next few months and the winners will be announced in November. Read More.
