British Private Equity Awards

British Private Equity Awards

4 October 2016, The Brewery, London

CELEBRATING INNOVATION AND EXCELLENCE IN PRIVATE EQUITY AND VENTURE CAPITAL

Our awards celebrate innovation and excellence in private equity and venture capital, as well as honoring the industry's ability to help build British businesses - and in doing so, foster the wider economy.

In keeping with the values that have made unquote” the industry’s most trusted source of private equity information and the British Private Equity Awards the most reputable, there are four stages in the judging process for the awards.

This years Host: Krishnan Guru-Murthy


Krishnan Guru-Murthy is a broadcast journalist and a specialist news presenter. He has covered five British general elections and presented a whole host of special political and foreign affairs programmes such as ‘Unreported World’, as well as anchoring ground breaking shows outside the news, including Dispatches’, ‘Going Cold Turkey’, ‘Surgery Live’ and ‘Autopsy’. In 2010 he was nominated as the Presenter of the Year for the Royal Television Society Journalism Awards.

In the last five years, in combination with his role as a news anchor, Krishnan has also enjoyed regular stints presenting a Sunday morning politics show on London radio station LBC and as a columnist for the Metro free newspaper.  He continues to appear on a range of entertainment programmes from ‘Never Mind the Buzzcocks’ to ‘The F Word’.
