Patient capital through the generations.

As part of a multi-generational family business and family-backed investor, we understand the needs of owner-managed enterprises. Long-term commitment is a major part of our heritage. Bregal Unternehmerkapital currently manages three billion Euros in assets under management.

Mission: Unternehmerkapital – entrepreneurial capital for entrepreneurs

Bregal Unternehmerkapital was founded in 2015 by Florian Schick and Jan-Daniel Neumann. The funds advised by us support entrepreneurial family businesses. Bregal specialises in majority and minority holdings, especially in mid-sized companies based in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Northern Italy – the “Mittelstand”. This investment activity is 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, swift decision-making, and 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 as family investor. 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.
