Business Growth Fund

unlocking the potential of fast-growing UK businesses

BGF was established in 2011 to help Britain’s growing smaller and medium sized businesses. Backed by five of the UK’s main banking groups – Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds, RBS and Standard Chartered – BGF is an independent company with up to £2.5bn with which to make long-term equity investments.  BGF also works closely with other key business organisations.


Our mission is to unlock the potential of fast-growing UK businesses that need long-term capital to drive their future success.

We are looking for companies that have robust and realistic expansion plans, with the flair, business acumen and desire to reach for new heights. In the current economic climate, Business Growth Fund offers a tremendously exciting opportunity for UK companies. BGF is about more than just financial investment and returns. We are offering a collaborative approach to financing growth, working closely with the companies in which we invest.

Our aim is to recognise businesses that have real potential and the desire to succeed. Our ambition is nothing less than creating the household business names and listed companies of tomorrow. Businesses that are successful not only in the UK, but around the world.
