Who are the PG Group?

The PG group of companies has been active in Bristol since the late 1990s when PG Properties was established as a small residential developer by Fthr Gregory Grant (profiled in the Daily Mail in 2014) and Peter Bradley.

Over the years the team grew, despite the loss of Peter Bradley who died in 2004, and became increasingly professional taking on larger and more complex developments.

There is now a family of companies including PG Properties Ltd (the parent company), PG Enterprises, PG Developments and special purpose vehicles for various developments.The Directors are Fthr Gregory Grant, Fiona Bradley, Paul Gaiger and Stuart Gaiger (son of Paul).

The PG Group website  states:

“The philosophy of the PG Group centres on providing a high quality service and product, to satisfy not only the client’s requirements but to enhance the environment and benefit the wider community. The buildings produced are a testament to the Groups’ aims and ambitions.”

The Grant Bradley Charitable Trust

Unusually for a developer, a proportion of profits are given to charity.  The website states, “Central to the vision of the Directors has been the establishment of The Grant Bradley Charitable Trust. A large proportion of the profits generated by the Group are donated to the Trust” .

According to the Charity Commission, the Trust’s principal aims and objectives are “to promote the interests of The Roman Catholic Church worldwide with a particular concern for the relief of poverty”. The Trust invests in Bristol, Albania, Peru and South Africa. The Trust’s annual report states “The Trust also has a programme of investment in assets which support the Trust’s objects such as housing for the elderly. The long term policy of the trust is to have sufficient assets to enable it to generate its own income for grant making. “
