Quarterly Review - May 2021

This is the third edition of the BVCA’s Quarterly Review, our regular publication designed to demonstrate the impact of private equity and venture capital on the UK economy using the latest data and research. This edition focuses on the ‘public value’ that our industry creates for the country and we highlight the measures being taken by the industry on issues relating to climate change and diversity and inclusion.

VIEW REPORT

The BVCA produces its own in-house research as well as commissioning outside, independent bodies to carry out topical research to help our understanding of the impact of private equity and venture capital, and how policy can best help the industry to support jobs and growth.

We publish our output – which ranges from academic and empirical studies to fund performance analyses to policy discussion papers and much more – through a variety of methods, including our research reports, which are available below to download.
