Alistair Brew


Alistair joined BGF in July 2011 and is based in London. His main role is to identify and successfully execute investments. He also sits on the board of a number of our portfolio companies.

Alistair has 14 years’ experience in small company investing and has led investments into over 25 businesses. His investment experience was gained initially at Close Brothers and then at Octopus Ventures, where he was involved in a large number of growth capital and management buyout transactions, across multiple sectors and throughout the UK. In the majority of cases, Alistair also joined the board of those companies. Alistair began his career at Price Waterhouse with direct entry into the Business Recovery Services team.

Alistair has an MA in Modern History from Oxford University and is a qualified Chartered Accountant. He is married with three children and lives near Guildford. When he is not running around after his children, Alistair likes to play (or increasingly now settle for watching) cricket.

“What excites me most about my role at BGF is the privilege of interacting with a wide variety of entrepreneurs, and I try to bring the same passion they display into my own efforts to support a portfolio company’s growth.”
