Software for intelligent automation and digital decision-making: Bregal Unternehmerkapital acquires ACTICO

Bregal Unternehmerkapital (“BU”) is delighted to share another exciting update. In March 2021, funds advised by BU acquired a majority stake in ACTICO, a leading, international provider of intelligent automation and digital decision-making software.


Founded in 1997 and acquired by Bosch in 2008, the company was carved out from its parent in 2015 by the current management team. Based in Immenstaad am Bodensee, Germany and with further locations in the U.S. and Singapore, ACTICO has more than 20 years of experience in providing software and services for the areas of risk management, regulatory and compliance issues, fraud prevention, customer retention and process optimisation. In particular, ACTICO excels through its high level of expertise in processing large data volumes and in developing reliable, robust and easily scalable applications.


ACTICO’s software-as-a-service (Saas) solutions are made available on premise as well as via cloud environments. The company has approximately 125 clients – primarily from the banking sector, but also from the insurance, manufacturing, retail and healthcare industries – who use ACTICO's software and services for their daily decision-based processes. In total, ACTICO has more than 50,000 users in over 25 countries, from SMEs to large Fortune-500 enterprises, and employs a staff of over 130.


ACTICO is well-positioned in a dynamic market segment due to its sophisticated and flexible platform solution. Coupled with a solid sales record from an established client base, the company is poised for continued growth particularly through further development of new markets and application areas.


Together with the founders and the management team, BU will support the realisation of these goals. While unlocking the company’s full potential, the family investor will not only support ACTICO with its patient capital, but also with many years of extensive entrepreneurial and sector-specific experience in the B2B software sector.
