Established in 1984, Bain Capital is one of the world's leading private investment firms with approximately $185 billion in assets under management. Bain Capital manages a range of strategies including private equity, special situations, public equity, credit, venture capital, real estate, life sciences, and impact investments. Our competitive advantage is grounded in a diligence-intensive, value-added investment approach that enables the firm to deliver industry-leading returns for its investors. Headquartered in Boston, Bain Capital has offices in Chicago, Dublin, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, London, Madrid, Melbourne, Mumbai, Munich, New York, Palo Alto, San Francisco, Seoul, Shanghai, Sydney, and Tokyo.


Bain Capital Special Situations has invested ~$35 billion in more than 900 deals across a balanced geographic mix of investments in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific since its founding in 2002. We provide bespoke capital solutions to meet the diverse needs of companies, entrepreneurs, and asset owners - in all market cycles. The strategy brings together equity and credit expertise, as well as corporate and real asset expertise, to provide solutions which cannot be met by traditional providers. Our dedicated, global team of 125+ investment and portfolio professionals contribute the local expertise and capabilities that enable these diverse investments.

Aviation is one of our key focus areas, both today and through the market cycle. Over our history, we have invested close to $4 billion in Special Situations aviation investments. Aircraft hard assets, including our investments in our Griffin and Titan JVs, have been a particular focus, with close to $2 billion invested in this sub-sector over the past few years. Going forward, we expect to build off our industry-leading track record to continue to grow our presence in aircraft hard assets, including with dedicated capital for this investment strategy.


Bain Capital has a dedicated global Portfolio Group within the firm’s Special Situations business. The Portfolio Group is responsible for fund and asset management and leads the strategy and analysis on fund construction, risk, and opportunities for the Global Special Situations business.

The Portfolio Group works side-by-side with Special Situations leadership and deal teams and provides extensive support, whenever and wherever needed on analytical, strategic, and operating issues. These capabilities have helped many Bain Capital companies develop and execute strategies to move swiftly to gain competitive advantage and achieve superior growth. We currently own ~$7 billion of aircraft assets across several platforms. Given this scale and complexity, the Portfolio Group is a highly valued and fully integrated piece of our aircraft strategy. We are currently hiring a Senior Associate or Manager (title dependent on candidate qualification) to work as part of the Portfolio Group focused on aircraft hard assets in our New York City office.
