Women in Private Equity 2018


Women in Private Equity 2018

The BVCA and Level 20 have published the first report on the number of women working in the private equity industry. This research provides a robust and valuable data set that highlights the lack of gender diversity in senior investment roles. The pipeline, however, is promising and we will continue to work with the industry to improve on these results over the coming years.

2018 - 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.

BVCA Report on Lessons Learnt From the Negotiation of AIFMD

For the UK PE and VC industry, the ability to engage effectively in the EU policy process is of particular importance, as recent years have seen a significant increase in the regulation of the sector from Europe. In particular, the Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFM) Directive now directly regulates the entire sector on a European scale. It is vital that both industry and regulators acquire a clear understanding of the nature of the policy process that led to the AIFMD, and learn the lessons as to how the UK could have engaged more effectively in the design and development of the legislation.
