“It is a real tribute to Daniel and his inspirational leadership that, while making such an immense contribution himself, he also built and empowered a highly capable senior management team which will continue to take the business forward.
“The thoughts of everyone at London & Capital are with his wife, Elaine, and two daughters, Laura and Samantha, at this very sad time.”
