What we do

British Patient Capital invests in best-in-class venture and venture growth capital fund managers with a strong UK focus, as well as directly in the most promising later-stage businesses.

As the UK’s largest domestic investor in UK venture and venture growth opportunities, we are increasing access to, and the availability of, long-term, patient finance. We do this via three schemes, each one addressing specific market issues.

Across all its activities, British Patient Capital invests on a commercial basis to deliver competitive returns for the UK taxpayer. By demonstrating that a patient capital approach can produce commercially attractive returns, we are encouraging other UK institutional investors to invest in the asset class, to both drive and benefit from the success of our high-growth companies.
