Sector

Business Services

Bridgepoint has completed 26 investments since 2000 totalling €2.9 billion in seven countries in the Business Services sector.

Business Services is a long-standing area of strength for us.

Our investment strategy leans heavily on the depth of experience gained from successfully investing in the sector for over 20 years. It encompasses a wide range of service provision and end markets.

We focus on companies with value-added or differentiated service offerings operating in end markets experiencing favourable structural growth. We’ve been especially interested in businesses where technology drives the ability to provide superior customer service or gives rise to a “different way of working” leading to opportunities to outpace market growth.

We often invest in companies operating in fragmented markets where consolidation can play a part in the strategic growth plan and have an extensive track record of supporting management teams to successfully implement buy-and-build strategies.

Many of the investments we make have a significant overlap with other core Bridgepoint investment areas.

We are particularly experienced in Testing & Inspection, Specialist Consultancy, White Collar Outsourcing and Education & Training.
