Manchester, 20 October 2022 - GP Bullhound acted as exclusive financial advisor to LDC, the private equity arm of Lloyds Banking Group, on its investment in Talos360, an award-winning provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions.

The partnership will also enable the team to create further opportunities for employees and it plans to create more than 50 new jobs by 2025.

John Clarke, Investment Director at LDC, said: “Talos360 is a fantastic business and the management team’s strategy of putting its people and customers first has enabled them to build an enviable proposition within the market. There’s a real opportunity to build on this, enabling the business to support more customers with their talent strategies, and we’re looking forward to supporting Janette, Stephen and the wider team on their journey.”
