Business Growth Fund hires investment associate in the South West

Business Growth Fund (BGF), established to help the UK’s fast growing smaller and medium sized businesses, has appointed Edwin Davies as an investment associate, based in BGF’s Bristol office.

Davies’ appointment brings the South West and South Wales regional team to six people and he will be responsible for identifying investable local businesses and working with them to achieve their growth plans.

Davies joins from Grant Thornton where he spent over two years as an assistant manager in the corporate finance team. During this time he worked on transactions both in the UK and abroad across a range of sectors providing advice to private equity houses, banks and corporates.

Paul Oldham, regional director for the South West and South Wales, says: “I am delighted to welcome Edwin to BGF’s South West and Wales regional team. With our new office space, a strengthened regional team and a healthy level of local deal flow we are in an excellent position going into 2013.

“We are looking to partner with businesses in our region that have exciting growth prospects and the ambition to succeed. In return we can offer access to long-term growth capital and access to a network of experienced business leaders from across the corporate world. We are keen for South West and South Wales based businesses to come and see what we can offer them."

The BGF team now totals more than 70 people across its 6 offices and is actively recruiting experienced investment professionals across the UK.
