The company

Founded in 1947, Lane Clark & Peacock LLP (“LCP”), provides expert, impartial actuarial, investment and general consulting advice to 600 corporate and pension trustee clients that include a third of the FTSE 100 as well as a number of insurance companies and charities. The business capitalises on demand from corporate trustees and sponsors seeking complex advice as regulation intensifies and diverse pension solutions come to market.

LCP has grown revenue over the last fifteen years. As a partnership, it has a strong owner-managed culture comprising of 95 partners and over 450 employees.

The UK pension consulting market is worth c. £1.2bn in 2016 and has enjoyed a long period of growth.

Growth strategy

LCP is a successful business with an enviable client base and culture of innovation. Previously part of a large Pan African financial services group, Alexander Forbes, LCP’s individual partners sought a minority investor to accelerate their growth strategy as an independent business.

The Inflexion difference

Our partnership will support innovation, add services and enhance business development to drive further customer acquisition. Inflexion’s uniquely flexible minority investment will help to develop LCP’s trajectory; our sector experience, senior network and entrepreneurial spirit made us a natural partner for LCP.
