Our approach

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 believe in the power of business and entrepreneurship. We aim to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns by investing responsibly, promoting the long-term prosperity of our businesses and creating positive social value.
