Investment Strategies

Lower Mid-Cap

Targeting structural growth & opportunities for platform investing

Our Lower Mid-Cap investment strategy is implemented by Bridgepoint Development Capital (‘BDC’), a dedicated team and fund focusing on buyouts and growth capital investments in businesses valued up to £200 million. These are typically growth companies operating in sectors experiencing structural growth and with the potential to grow revenues and profits.

BDC invests across six sectors: Business Services, Consumer, Financial Services, Healthcare, Manufacturing & Industrials and Technology & Media with companies typically having their headquarters in France, the Nordic region and the UK.

In partnership with the management teams we back, we aim to build value in our portfolio companies through focussed business expansion and operational improvement initiatives. Our understanding of the dynamics of a sector gives managers, vendors and their advisers the confidence that a business can succeed under our ownership. We can move quickly when we see an opportunity that excites us that we can develop.

We’re especially keen to support companies with further capital for ‘buy and build’ investments. BDC has a strong track record of adding significant value to its portfolio companies, especially by deploying our cross-border execution capability in Europe, US and China. Unusually for many private equity firms in the lower mid-cap space, BDC is able to draw on the scale resources and network of the Bridgepoint Group, thereby providing additional insight and access to opportunities to accelerate the growth prospects of our portfolio companies.

Such insight, financial strength, speed and flexibility of decision-making mean that we have been able to buy over 30 businesses in our investment size range over the last 10 years.
