Our Governance

UKGI is a government company wholly owned by HM Treasury.

UKGI brings together the functions of the Shareholder Executive (ShEx) and UK Financial Investments Ltd (UKFI) under a single holding company.

UKGI is a government company with HM Treasury as its sole shareholder.  UKGI’s activities are governed by its Board and underpinned by its Articles of Association and framework agreement with HM Treasury. UKGI is accountable via its independent Board to Treasury ministers and – through the Chancellor – to Parliament.

Our Values are to be:

Supportive and inclusive
Open and              honest
Expert and professional
Collaborative and outcome-focused
Quote from Heather Mellors, Head of HR

“UKGI is a dynamic and stimulating place to work. Colleagues are motivated by working at the heart of the UK government, on projects which are usually complex, often headline-grabbing, and always rewarding.


“It brings together outstanding individuals from both the private and public sectors, and provides a unique environment which enables them to access experiences which would be otherwise out of reach.”
