Guy Bates

With responsibility for our equity and loans portfolio, I work with the portfolio managers to shape our portfolio and follow-on investment strategy.

I joined the Development Bank’s restructuring team in 2011, holding a number of senior posts since then. I have always maintained a keen focus on ensuring our portfolio companies have access to the right finance and advice.

After completing my degree in Engineering, I became an ACA qualified accountant with Pricewaterhouse Coopers in Cardiff. I worked there for eight years, advising businesses and their investors.
