Barony Facilitates Inward Investment to UK CompaniesJuly 3, 2021
Barony Consulting Group Limited are a member of the Department for International Trade’s UK Investment Support Directory.
Over the last two years Barony has introduced investors from the Far East to invest in several UK businesses involved in education, publishing, corporate services and tourism.
For example, Griffin College which specialises in delivering ILM/City&Guilds facilities management education courses had 70% of its equity acquired by a Malaysian company in 2019. This investor specialises in property and facilities development, and its principal was also a founder of an internationally-recognised private university in Malaysia.
The Malaysian investor has a significant range of contacts through their participation in the Association of South East Asian Countries (ASEAN) network, and plans a major expansion to deliver Griffin College courses in Malaysia, Singapore and China initially, creating additional opportunities for UK-based course developers, examiners and assessors.
