Sector

Financial Services

Bridgepoint has completed nine investments since 2000 totalling €949 million in three countries in the Financial Services sector.

We look to acquire growth-oriented companies with strong market positions and earnings potential where we can create significant additional value through expansion and operational improvement. We achieve this by bringing together the best teams with the right sector and transaction experience with eager managers keen to identify opportunities to build businesses for long-term growth.

We look to back businesses with models that are highly scalable and operate in fragmented markets open to consolidation, especially quality providers with specialist products capable of international expansion.

In the financial services sector we divide our coverage into ‘technology’ and ‘services’. Technology influences everything: from distribution and how a product is brought to market, to improving internal efficiency for financial institutions as well as improving choice and service levels for customers. Our focus here is primarily two-fold: payments providers (merchant acquirers, ISOs, processors etc), and providers of software for the financial services sector, across all sub-verticals.

In the services segment we are interested in verticals within insurance (including underwriting, broking, services into the insurance industry and software), asset and wealth management, and specialty lending, especially where smart and capital light financing work hand in hand with outstanding levels of service.
