Presented by The British Private Equity and Venture Capital Association and Real Deals magazine, these annual awards are the ultimate accolade for the industry’s dealmakers and advisers, and recognise the very best achievements of individuals and firms working within venture capital and private equity.

The House of the Year Award recognises "outstanding achievement in the calendar year of 2008". According to the judging panel: "Bowmark recently raised a £265 million fund...and has completed a run of exceptional lower mid-market exits, including School Travel Group which generated a 72% IRR. Bowmark has been a consistent performer...and its latest fundraising is a great endorsement of its own track record and the small buyout space."

Charles Ind, managing partner of Bowmark Capital, said: "We are delighted to receive this award in such a challenging year for the UK economy ­- which is a testament to the support of our investors, and the quality of the companies and management teams we have backed".
