Our Strategy

Our strategy is focused on growing and diversifying Bridgepoint’s business and creating value for clients and shareholders.

There are three strategic pillars:

Bridgepoint is a global leader in middle market private asset investing and strongly positioned to continue to deliver significant growth.

Scale existing strategies

Capitalise on Bridgepoint’s strong position by continuing to scaling existing strategies, through further enhancing each strategy’s investment platform and exploiting the opportunity of an evolving alternative asset management market.

Continual investment in our platform enables the consistent scaling of existing strategies within their respective markets. This includes through deepening the presence in existing geographies which increases the opportunities to deploy capital. In combination with long-term growth in the middle market this enables growth in core successor funds. Sequential fund growth is complemented by growth in separately managed accounts (particularly in Bridgepoint Credit) and the growth in continuation funds.

Continue the track record of strong AUM growth established over the past two decades through scaling existing strategies.

Product strategy extension

Utilise the strength of our existing platform, origination capability, domain and sector knowledge and strong central functions to launch funds that complement our core strategies.

Bridgepoint has a strong track record of developing new products within existing investment strategies. Both the private equity and credit businesses began as single investment strategies before growing both organically and inorganically, so that each currently has three distinct investment products. The combination with ECP will increase these opportunities, for example there is an opportunity to accelerate ECP’s nascent infrastructure debt strategy.

Continue to launch new credit, infrastructure and equity products within existing investment strategies.

Expand into new alternative asset classes

Significant scope remains to enhance Bridgepoint’s scale and market positioning, and create platform synergies through entry into adjacent alternative asset classes.

The forthcoming combination with ECP is the latest example of the Group’s strong track record of successfully acquiring and integrating new businesses. In the medium-term, Bridgepoint sees scope for similar acquisitions within other private markets asset classes, such as real estate and secondaries, as well as other segments of existing asset classes where the Group’s well-invested operating platform, capital-raising capabilities and reputation would enable acquired businesses to more successfully scale their operations.

Continue to successfully develop new businesses in adjacent private market asset classes, either through acquisition or incubation.

Continued organic and M&A-driven growth across investment strategies and geographies
