Legal & General hires Campbell Lutyens to sell LGV Capital portfolio; deal close to completion

It sounds like FTSE 100 insurer Legal & General is on the verge of selling its private equity arm and stakes in several well-known retail outfits, such as outdoor clothing retailer Snow + Rock and bar chain Tiger Tiger.

Two years ago, Legal & General shocked the private equity market when it emerged the insurer decided it was not going to provide any more funding to LGV Capital, which was founded in 1986 and is one of Britain's oldest private equity firms. Here is a link to an article in The Sunday Times on the topic: 

And now I understand the insurance giant has hired Campbell Lutyens - a firm that specialises in selling portfolios of private equity funds - to offload the remainder of LGV Capital's investments in one lump and a deal is quite close to being announced.

Unfortunately, I don't know the identity of the buyer of LGV Capital and its portfolio although I suspect a firm that specialises in these type of portfolio deals, such as Coller Capital or Caird Capital, could be involved.

Other companies that remain in the LGV Capital portfolio include ABI, which makes caravan holiday homes, and  Liberation Group, a business that owns over 60 pubs in the Channel Islands.

Legal & General, which today released a trading update, declined to comment.

  2. I am ROSE SMITH from CANADA a single parent, before my husband died he left us with so much DEBT that we could not cope with life, I was totally confused on what to do. When I was going through the internet I came across a POST by MARCUS CAFE about how Mrs JULIA NAVARO help him to get a loan so I applied for the loan from JULIA NAVARO through her mail ( of $200,000 with a duration of 10 years. When I was applying for the loan I made a vow to GOD that if I get the loan I will let the world know what she did for me, to my greatest surprise my loan was granted with
    an interest of 2%. I was able to settle my debt and start up a new life and business with a settled family. So if you want any type of loan for as low as 2% please contact JULIA NAVARO on her mail just fulfilled my vow.
