Regulatory Committee

To serve all members with a view to keeping them abreast of current regulatory issues. It seeks to ensure that the role of the private equity and venture capital industry in the context of financial services regulation is understood and accommodated by Government and the EU as well as by the regulators.

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.
