Deploying Significant Capital into Privately Held Companies and Funds with High Growth Potential
Established in 1995, our $24.8 billion well diversified and high performing global portfolio contains privately-held companies through both direct investments and funds. Our activities are driven by our sector focus – we invest in the industrial, healthcare, financial and business services, technology, and consumer/retail sectors.
In 2022, we opened our first international office for private equity in New York City. Having a team in the largest global investment hub enables BCI to foster new relationships while generating additional opportunities to invest capital through our direct and fund investment programs.

OUR PRIVATE EQUITY PROGRAM
BCI invests in leverage buyout and growth equity opportunities that include market leading companies with tangible downside protection. Portfolio companies have a sustainable competitive advantage, offer value-added products and services, and are led by talented management teams.
We are a direct equity investor and may also invest alongside a strategic general partner with deep sector expertise. Our significant equity investments secure meaningful governance positions, allowing BCI to fulfill our role as an active asset manager in overseeing the strategic direction of each company. Value creation informs our activities and we seek stable cash flows over the duration of the investment holding.
