David Bell


David supervises the portfolio management process across the partnership and sits on the Investment Committee for all YFM funds. He has limited direct investment responsibilities which allows him to work across the portfolio and act as a sounding board for the rest of the team.


David Joined YFM in 2009 after 10 years as a Portfolio Director at international Private Equity house, 3i, where he oversaw the realisation of over £100m in cash proceeds from investments. Before moving into private equity, David worked as a management consultant in Europe and North America specialising in supply chain optimisation.


David owns a small vineyard which occupies much of his free time. He enjoys watching and occasionally playing sport and spending time with his family, for whom he provides a complementary taxi service.
