Enabling Growth

 

LGB & Co. is a Capital Markets and Investments firm founded in 2005. 

We support the development of fast-growing quoted and private companies that are making a difference in sectors such as finance, manufacturing, business services and healthcare by meeting the unmet needs of their customers. We develop strategic dialogues with our corporate clients, which enable us to understand the resources they require to achieve scale in their products and services.

Our close corporate relationships lead to tailored debt and equity capital raising transactions. These create a regular deal-flow for our in-house investing clients and for our partner wealth and investment management firms.   

The completion of successful transactions enables us to broaden our network of clients and business counterparties. This is our primary source of introductions to new business opportunities.

Strategic thinking

The growth of our business depends on the success of our corporate clients and the returns that we generate for investors. These factors require strategic thinking that takes into account the stages of the corporate development journey and investment throughout economic cycles. Our approach is based on a clear understanding of wealth creation and how this is changing with business and technology innovations.

Time Finance plc has successfully utilised funding from private lenders in the past, however this programme, arranged by LGB Capital Markets, created a more structured funding mechanism giving us access to funding from family offices and institutional investors.

Ian Smith
CEO, Time Finance plc

I was fortunate in being introduced to LGB in early 2014, with bank interest rates being so low I was looking for investment help. LGB provided a mixture of reasonably high interest loans together with tax efficient investments in smaller firms with reasonable prospect of capital gain. I have come to appreciate the care taken to select investment opportunities that are an advantageous mixture of risk and opportunity.

I am happy to have been a client of LGB Investments since 2007 and find LGB’s assumption of the burden of due diligence on SMEs a very satisfactory facet of its service.  I have no hesitation in commending the firm to anyone looking for the benefit of the personal  – and focused – attention to be expected of a first rate boutique.

The LGB note programme provided an ideal solution to this requirement and the team at LGB Capital Markets quickly and efficiently put in place a £10 million secured note programme for SRT with £2 million issued on day one. I was delighted with the robust, professional and efficient approach of LGB Capital Markets and look forward to working with them in the future as SRT develops.

Simon Tucker
