The sole business activity of BC Partners is the raising, advising and managing of funds from third-party investors for investment in private equity transactions.
As required by the FCA, BC Partners has a written Conflicts of Interest policy that it employs to manage such potential and actual conflicts. BC Partners operates within an organisational and contractual structure designed to align the interests of BC Partners and its executives with those of the Limited Partners. BC Partners will seek to identify potential and actual conflicts of interest in relation to the Fund and to manage them. Staff are required to notify the Head of Compliance of material conflicts so that they can be monitored and added to the conflicts register. The Head of Compliance also monitors gifts and entertainment and political donations for potential conflicts.
In addition, the Partnership Agreements will contain provisions regulating how certain types of conflict of interest will be dealt with including through the Advisory Committee, which provides a mechanism for reviewing and, as the case may be, approving certain conflicts of interest that are referred to it by the Manager.
