This Review offers an insight into BGF’s numerous achievements over the past year, showing that a passion for innovation and entrepreneurship continue to be the company’s driving force.
2016 was the year BGF celebrated its fifth birthday, passed a landmark £1billion of capital invested in growing UK businesses, and became the UK’s top institutional investor for the year.
