Kelly Wade

Risk & Compliance


Kelly works in the Risk and Compliance team at BGF and is based in our Edinburgh office. Kelly deals with a range of the different compliance areas and is also responsible for carrying out KYC checks on BGF investments.


Before joining the team in 2016, Kelly worked for Lloyds Banking Group in the Customer due diligence team.


Kelly studied Law at Edinburgh Napier University and obtained a First Class LLB Law (Hons) degree. She is now studying towards completing her CISI Diploma in Investment Compliance. When she is not spending her evenings studying, she enjoys travelling and dining out with friends.


“Working at BGF has given me the opportunity to work with some incredible people and most importantly, contribute to helping SME’s grow and reach their goals. My role in the Risk and Compliance team gives me exposure to all of BGF’s investments and means working very closely with the deal teams. This has allowed me to gain a greater insight of the investment process within BGF and the types of businesses we are investing in, which has been very interesting. I look forward to being a part of BGF as it continues to grow.”
