Bregal Investments seeks to invest in well-run companies with sound business models, robust business integrity and an ability to have a positive impact on local communities and society. We aim to partner with outstanding investment teams with a strong track record, high standards of excellence and ethics, and an ability to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns for our investors; in addition to providing transformative capital.
Our funds work closely with the management teams of our portfolio companies to transform and grow their businesses for future success, focusing on long-term, sustainable value creation. Ensuring a strong adherence to environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles is a cornerstone of the way in which Bregal Investments and its funds operate.
Bregal Investment is an integrated platform providing investment oversight and corporate governance, as well as delivering high quality centralised operational support and investment expertise.
Our ambition is to continue growing the Bregal Investments platform by expanding the fund products offered by our existing teams and launching new investment strategies, while diversifying and growing our investor base.
At Bregal, we are firm believers in the fundamental role private equity can play in generating both financial value and positive impact for society and the planet. We do not have to make choices between our core values and performance – as it is clear to us that acting responsibly and being driven by a clear purpose will generate superior risk-adjusted returns for our investors.

Our culture and values
Across Bregal, we believe in the importance of entrepreneurship and strong business acumen as drivers of success. Equally, we acknowledge our responsibility to a broad range of stakeholders, and to society/our planet more broadly. We champion a responsible investment approach focused on creating long-term, sustainable value. We seek to foster and promote a culture of responsible ownership by building trust with our management teams, investing in the long-term prosperity of their business and contributing to the local communities in which they operate. This approach is guided by our five core values.
Commitment to quality and the pursuit to be the best in what we do
Trust is the foundation for any relationship. A firm belief in the reliability, ability or strength of a person or object
Seeing the bigger picture, vigorously pursuing the opportunity and being innovative
Contributing to a better, fairer and more sustainable world
A consistency and unity of thought and action in every aspect of our organisation
