UK & European Capital Committee

The UK & European Capital Committee represents the interests of the BVCA’s mid-market members who invest primarily in mid-market deals, including buyouts, buy-ins and growth capital. Our objective is to facilitate open and effective communication between the BVCA and its member firms and to proactively support the BVCA in engaging with Government and other external stakeholders.

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.
