Building a Board for Investment, with Alistair Brew, BGF

A strong senior leadership team can help you reassure investors that the business can grow with or without you, with the processes and plan in place to scale.

Members who have gone through the process of securing equity investment highlight the importance of a good FD or CFO in presenting a strong set of accounts and a growth plan to justify a higher valuation. A good chairman or NED can help you find the right investor and advise on how to best deploy the investment.  

Alastair Brew, an investor at BGF, will join us as an expert guest for the evening. BGF is a £2.5billion UK Growth Capital fund backed by five of the UK’s major banks, and Alistair sits on the boards of several BGF portfolio companies. With 14 years’ experience in small company investing, Alistair has led investments in over 25 businesses, as well as many growth capital and management buyout transactions, across multiple sectors and throughout the UK. In most cases, Alistair also joined the boards of these companies.

This dinner will look to explore, but will not be limited to: 
  • What an investor wants to see in a senior leadership team
  • Understanding the roles and skills required for a senior team
  • What you should expect from a chairman and NED
