Founded in 1986 as one of the few truly pan-European buy-out investors, BCP Private Equity has grown and evolved into a leader in buy-outs, principally investing in larger businesses in the region and selectively in North America through its established network of international offices. BCP Private Equity continues to identify attractive investment opportunities by focusing on the best balance of risk and reward for its investors.
Since inception, BCP Private Equity has completed 108 acquisitions with a total enterprise value of over €135 billion and has delivered superior returns through economic cycles, demonstrating discipline in bull markets and an ability to invest in attractive opportunities amidst turbulence and recession.
The BCP Credit platform was established in 2017 by BC Partners to pursue credit-oriented investments utilising a variety of strategies as part of its investment program, primarily in developed markets with a focus on North America and Europe. BCP Credit has two primary strategy components: opportunistic and yield.
The BCP Real Estate platform was established in 2018 by BC Partners to pursue real estate investment opportunities across Europe.
