Barclays invite you to attend our insights event where we will be proud to introduce you to the new Barclays Midlands Growth Fund.

Alongside the Government’s own £250m Midlands Engine Investment Fund, Barclays' commitment of £370m* of new lending will be focused on supporting the continued growth and development in the Midlands region. In addition, our discussion will explore the role the Local Enterprise Partnership is playing to support economic growth along with an opportunity to hear from Iain Stewart MP, charged with Championing the Oxford – MK - Cambridge corridor, on his thoughts on the opportunity this creates for the business community.

We will be joined by the following guest speakers:
  • Jon Corbett, Head of SME, South East Midlands & Cambridgeshire
  • Patrick Magee, Chief Commercial Officer, British Business Bank
  • Hilary Chipping, Chief Executive, South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership
  • Iain Stewart MP, Milton Keynes South
The new fund is just one part of Barclays' long-term commitment to the Midlands.
