Sub-Series II: Subject Files - Biotechnology and Medical Company Reviews (SB/4/2), 1981-1995


Scope and Contents

Biotechnology Investments Limited (BIL) (established, 1981) was Europe's first specialist biotech investment company, funding early-stage and unlisted biotechnology companies. Dr. Brenner was one of six eminent scientists hired as an advisor to BIL (under the direction of Rothschild Asset Management) for the purpose of gathering the most accurate technical and financial information about these start-up companies. Dr. Brenner reviewed their research, project reports, staffing and business plans and reported his findings back to BIL. The documents in this subseries are the notes he created about the companies and their potential as investment entities, as well as some correspondence regarding those companies. Further documents could be found throughout the Rothschild Assent Management folders.
