Backing ambition across the South West and Wales

LDC launched in the South West in 2008 to back the management teams of established and growing businesses across the seven counties.

In 2016, LDC extended its footprint further with the launch of an office in Cardiff, to provide the only on-the-ground presence of a mid-market private equity firm in Wales.

The team has invested more than £125million to support the growth of businesses across all sectors of the regional economy, supported by our partnerships with the local corporate finance community.

In 2018 LDC’s South West & Wales team collected a trio of successes at the South West Dealmakers Awards as it was named 'Private Equity House of the Year'. The judges praised the team as the ‘most consistent’ equity funder in the South West.
