Bregal Freshstream LLP
PE / VC
Bregal Freshstream was launched in September 2015 after closing its maiden €600m private equity fund backed solely by Bregal Investments - a family-backed investment fund - and its team members.
The firm is focused on mid-market investments and looks to invest between €30m and €100m of equity per investment in growth businesses across a wide variety of sectors, with a particular geographic focus on the UK and Benelux markets. Bregal Freshstream seeks to acquire majority equity stakes in the companies in which it invests, although it also has the flexibility to invest across their entire capital structures, including in debt and debt-like instruments.
Its investor structure allows Bregal Freshstream to take flexible approaches to capital structures and adapt its investment horizon to the specific needs and value creation potential of each portfolio company. Bregal Freshstream is focused principally on relationship based, bilateral transactions, being comfortable with highly complicated situations and taking a generally conservative approach to leverage.
Although the business is sector-agnostic, looking at each potential investment on its merits, the team has significant prior experience in industries such as healthcare, general manufacturing, financial services, aerospace, branded retail, chemicals, building products and TMT.
