PHILADELPHIA & LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Lovell Minnick Partners (“LMP”), a private equity firm focused on investments in financial services, financial technology, and related business services, today announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire a majority stake in London & Capital.

London & Capital has served at the forefront of London’s wealth management sector for over 30 years, focusing on serving domestic and international high-net-worth (“HNW”) and ultra-high-net-worth (“UHNW”) individuals, including many who have US connections, and institutions. London & Capital has grown its AUM, revenues, and profits strongly in the last five years, extended its services into Europe to support clients post-Brexit, and developed multiple new services and technology solutions for its expanding client base. The Company now serves over 800 private and institutional clients.
