Who we are

Langton Capital’s principal, Mark Brumby, has researched companies listed within the UK leisure sector for more than 20 years. A Cambridge economics graduate, Mark is a Chartered Accountant and, in addition to working in sell-side research, has occupied positions in both corporate finance and in fund management when he ran the US$100m Global Leisure Fund for Banque Pictet in Geneva. He returned to the UK in 2002 in order to co-found Oriel Securities and has since worked at Blue Oar Securities before founding Langton Capital in 2010.

Despite working for smaller firms, he has achieved recognition and has scored highly against larger operators and across the whole market rather than just within leisure in a number of Starmine and Extel surveys.

Mark has interests in a number of fast-growing leisure companies and was a director of Drake & Morgan, which has units in the City, Southwark and Canary Wharf – see Drake & Morgan. Drake & Morgan was sold to Bowmark Capital in April 2013. Mark produces a daily email that is sent to clients, an example of which can be seen on this website.
