The Inflexion investment
During the four-year partnership, LCP consolidated its market position as the leading independent provider of pension and investment consulting services. Expert headcount increased from c. 600 to nearly 800. LCP also increased its investments into broader revenue streams such as insurance, energy and analytics. In addition, the firm’s management has a forward-looking and responsible leadership style, which led to LCP becoming an industry leader in the use of technology and in Diversity and Inclusion during the period of our investment. Four years of strong growth together resulted in revenues increasing by over 50% and pension scheme assets under advice increasing from c. £100bn to c. £245bn.
The Inflexion difference
Inflexion’s Partnership Capital offering enabled LCP’s partners to return the business to independence by them taking a majority stake in the business. Inflexion then helped the business through providing access to the Inflexion network and supporting initiatives such as new business development and investment into organic growth, as well as assisting them with evaluating acquisition opportunities.
