£400m Midlands Engine Investment Fund II preparing for 2024 launch

British Business Bank invites proposals from potential fund managers to operate the new fund (20th June 2023)

A £400m investment fund to support the growth of small and medium-sized businesses across the Midlands is on course to be launched early next year. The Midlands Engine Investment Fund II (MEIF II) is being delivered by the British Business Bank, bringing the total it has specifically earmarked for investment in the region to over £700m since 2017.

The Midlands Engine Investment Fund II is part of the new Nations and Regions Investment Funds, launched by the British Business Bank, which will deliver a commitment of new funding to drive sustainable economic growth, levelling-up of access to finance in the Midlands through debt and equity funds in the region.

This builds on the success of the existing Midlands Engine Investment Fund which has been in operation since 2017.
