What we do

BGF is a different kind of investor. We help you build your business, your way. We’re the world’s most active investor in growing companies, backing businesses with ambition across the UK and Ireland.

We operate across a network of 14 offices which means we can back promise wherever we find it. We invest at all stages of growth, from early to quoted, and across industries. And we have a £2.5bn balance sheet, meaning we are not restricted by short-term investment deadlines. The funding we provide is underpinned by ongoing advice from our network of business leaders, and in-house support on senior appointments.
