The British Private Equity & Venture Capital Association (BVCA) is the voice of private capital in the UK.

We have been advocating for the UK’s private equity and venture capital industry for 40 years, helping it to uphold its vision and achieve its goals.

We actively represent this diverse community of long-term investors, enabling them to speak with one clear and consistent voice to society, including the Government, media and MPs.

We connect institutional investors, fund managers, companies, advisers and service providers together, with our membership currently comprising more than 700 businesses from across the private capital ecosystem. This includes more than 325 PE and VC firms, 100 institutional investors and 220 professional services firms.

The BVCA supports its members to help companies grow and achieve their long-term ambitions, creating value for the country, both economically and socially. From creating medicines to protect us against Covid-19, to backing innovative companies in their quest to find solutions to our low-carbon future, private capital also plays a critical role in addressing society’s future challenges.

Together we are invested in a better future.
