Business Growth Fund

Business Growth Fund is an independent company established by the UK’s largest banks, including Barclays, to help fast growing businesses by providing long-term growth capital.

BGF makes minority stake investments of £2m+ to UK businesses with a turnover of £5m - £100m. Every company is considered on its individual merits.

Is it right for you?

  • Growth capital from BGF is long-term equity funding that a management team can use to execute their strategic plans
  • It provides funding for a whole range of working capital and acquisition strategies where raising capital through full equity issuance would be too dilutive 
  • Non-financial support is also offered, providing corporate governance over the long-term 

How it supports your business

  • Supports management teams with a good track record, a proven business model and a desire to grown
  • Initial investment of £2m–£10m of growth capital for a minority equity stake and a board seat, with potential to provide further funding as a company continues to grow
  • Long-term funding of up to 10 years, with follow-on investment, developing a meaningful partnership based on shared goals and objectives from the outset
  • Investments are made in ordinary shares, loan notes or a combination and BGF will consider an element of cash out to existing shareholders at the time of their investment
  • With nine offices across the UK, BGF strives to be relevant to the businesses it invests in
