About LCM

LCM Partners is a leading European Alternative Investment Fund Manager.

LCM Partners is the specialist partner for financial institutions and global investors who seek real value in private credit assets. LCM Partners has been investing in credit for over 25 years and the senior team’s experience was gained in asset management, investment banking, strategic consulting, M&A and business intelligence. The core senior management team has been in place for over 20 years.

We benefit from a proactive approach with banks and financial institutions, often transacting on a repeat basis which then leads to building long-term and exclusive partnerships.

We manage over €63 billion across more than 4,700 portfolios.

Highly Differentiated Investment Style

LCM has one of the strongest private credit origination capabilities in Europe.

We manage over €63 billion across more than 4,700 portfolios and work in partnership with over 110 banks across Europe.

There is no substitute for experience and our demonstrable success in Private Credit since 1999 has delivered stable, double digit returns for investors and shareholders across all the economic cycles.

Credit Opportunities Strategy (COPS)

The COPS strategy focuses on the purchase of granular, unsecured and secured consumer and SME loans. We target transactions of €5-500m across multiple asset types including credit cards, mortgages, personal and commercial loans, retail credit, auto loans, leasing and asset finance, utility bills and consumer public sector (including student loans).

COPS’ investment strategy offers a highly differentiated exposure within the private debt market through a well-diversified portfolio of performing, reperforming and non-performing loans purchased from banks, finance companies and other loan originators.

LCM’s sister company, Link Financial is one of Europe’s leading specialist loan servicers and as a Group, employs over 1,000 people across 13 European offices.

It has an established global network of servicing partners that offers greater coverage, providing unparalleled access to transactions and opportunities across key European and global markets.

We have a database of individual loan by loan level data on 5.3 million accounts across economic cycles that offers unique insights and underpins our track record of double digit, unleveraged returns.

Strategic Origination and Lending Opportunities (SOLO)

SOLO is a high-quality, asset-backed performing loan strategy that aims to generate robust, risk-adjusted returns.

Through SOLO, LCM forms long-term and exclusive partnerships with established originators across Europe to fund granular, high-quality, small and middle ticket loans and leases, with a typical advance of between €5,000 – €5m, to SMEs and individual borrowers.

The SOLO strategy targets a diverse range of attractive segments within secured loans, asset finance and leasing and select smaller ticket products which now fall outside the remit of banks and other traditional lenders.

As well as capital, LCM Partners are perfectly placed to provide originators with a full operating solution, leveraging the group’s technology, servicing platform and experience managing granular and difficult to manage loans.

LCM Partners recognises the importance of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues, both in the way we invest and in the way we manage our investments.

Responsible Practice - ESG

We believe that a comprehensive ESG framework with a strong focus on compliance promotes good management practices whilst contributing to the long-term success of LCM and our clients.

In March 2022, as part of our drive to integrate ESG practices into our businesses, LCM Partners became a signatory of the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI).

Our ethical approach to borrower engagement is built on fairness and respect, regardless of circumstances. Our SOLO direct lending strategy has ESG at its heart, with a majority of the activity aligned with the UN Sustainable Development goals, and incorporates areas such as financing equipment to service renewable energy development assets or the origination of social housing leases.

Our associated group loan servicing business is rated “Strong” by Standard and Poor’s as a special servicer in the UK; compliance and excellence are the cornerstones of our operating platform.

We have always adhered to, and held ourselves up to, the highest standards of conduct.

We rigorously vet our external suppliers to ensure that they share the same high standards to which we hold ourselves.  Both as a firm and as individuals we support a number of charities in our communities as well as helping to raise funds for local and international organisations.

Our performance is a direct result of the expertise of our team.
