Patient capital through the generations.

As part of a multi-generational family business, we understand the needs of owner-managed enterprises. Long-term commitment is a major part of our heritage. Bregal Unternehmerkapital currently manages around EUR 1 billion in overall assets, with a current fund of EUR 550 million.

Mission: Unternehmerkapital – patient capital for entrepreneurs

Bregal Unternehmerkapital is part of a family-owned business that has grown over several generations. Bregal specialises in majority and minority holdings, especially in mid-sized companies based in Germany, Switzerland and Austria – the “Mittelstand”. This investment activity is free of institutional constraints and insulated from developments in the financial markets. With patient capital, entrepreneurial expertise and a partnership approach, we can focus on the performance of the portfolio companies and help them generate sustainable value. Bregal emphasizes financial stability, optimum flexibility, fast decision-making and great entrepreneurial freedom for its portfolio companies.

Ethos: Unternehmerkapital with a proven value compass

At Bregal Unternehmerkapital, everything we do is informed by our heritage and values. Our ethical and commercial standards are correspondingly high. As a reliable partner, we are committed to maintaining the utmost confidentiality and integrity. These values are shared by our global network of entrepreneurs and industry experts who provide close support to the management teams of our portfolio companies.

Benchmark: Unternehmerkapital to grow businesses

When Bregal invests, it does so with the long term in mind. Working with management, we aim for strong and sustained growth in sales, profitability and value. All executives are encouraged to remain or become shareholders. And with flexible financing and an experienced team of complementary experts, we can create custom-tailored, results-oriented solutions for complex industrial spin-offs, management buy-outs and other successions.
