    Goals / remit

The British Private Equity & Venture Capital Association (BVCA) is the industry body and public policy advocate for the private equity and venture capital industry in the UK.

Our voice is one of authority when speaking for, or negotiating on behalf of, the UK industry. Our aim is to aid understanding, clarity and transparency around the activities of our members, promoting our industry to entrepreneurs and investors as well as to Government, the EU, trade unions, international media and the general public.

More than 500 firms make up the BVCA members and this number continues to grow as the knowledge, news and counsel the BVCA is able to offer its membership is recognised as increasingly invaluable and essential. The BVCA Membership comprises over 230 private equity, midmarket and venture capital firms with an accumulated total of over £230 billion funds under management; as well as over 220 professional advisory firms, including legal, accounting, regulatory and tax advisers, corporate financiers, due diligence professionals, environmental advisers, transaction services providers, and placement agents. Additional members include international investors and funds-of-funds, secondary purchasers, university teams and academics and fellow national private equity and venture capital associations globally.
