Our business in numbers
This section analyses the performance* of British Patient Capital’s investments in 2020.
It is encouraging that BPC has maintained positive returns given it is early in the life of the patient capital portfolio we are building. Due to the significant increase in commitments made during 2019/20, IRR and Return on Capital have naturally dipped.
