BGF invests in companies with serious potential and talented management teams. Click here to see more information about joining us.
BGF is governed by a Main Board. This is chaired by Sir Nigel Rudd, and includes representatives of the five shareholding banks and four other independent non-executive directors. The Main Board focuses on ensuring that BGF has an effective infrastructure, strong internal governance and appropriate investment strategies. The Main Board is not involved in investment or operational decisions.
A separate Executive Team led by the Chief Executive (Stephen Welton), supported by executive directors, has overall accountability for investment and operational decisions.
Regional Directors run each of BGF's teams across the UK, reporting to the Head of Investments (Richard Bishop). Whilst the appraisal and investment process will be led from the regional office closest to the company, BGF has the scale and flexibility to resource specific deal teams to make best use of the relevant experience and sector specialisms of individual investment team members.
