Alternative Lending Working Group

The alternative lending working group comprises of senior professionals from firms with a range of alternative lending strategies that are aligned with the private equity and venture capital industry's emphasis on business growth. These strategies include the provision of mezzanine finance, direct lending, unitranche finance, collateralized loan obligations and venture debt. The members work with the BVCA to raise awareness of alternative lending among a wide range of stakeholders by engaging with the BVCA’s technical, policy, research, events, training and communications departments.

The terms of reference for our Council, Committees and Advisory Groups are included in the BVCA Governance Handbook. The Handbook provides directors, members and employees of the BVCA with a summary of our governance structure and supplements the Articles of Association.
