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.

Solutions for your business
  • 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.
