Bain Capital, LP is one of the world’s leading private investment firms with approximately $185 billion of assets under management that creates lasting impact for our investors, teams, businesses, and the communities in which we live. Since our founding in 1984, we’ve applied our insight and experience to organically expand into several asset classes including private equity, credit, public equity, venture capital and real estate. We leverage our shared platform to capture cross-asset class opportunities in strategic areas of focus. With offices on four continents, our global team aligns our interests with those of our investors for lasting impact.


Bain Capital Partners is the private equity affiliate of Bain Capital. Over the past 31 years, The Private Equity Group has made over 280 investments and has 15 active global buyout funds. Our private equity activity primarily includes leveraged buyouts and growth capital invested across a wide variety of sectors. Bain Capital has found that a combination of a strong management team, sound fundamental business analysis, and a focused strategy can substantially improve a company’s income as well as its long-term strategic value.

Bain Capital Partners seeks opportunities to invest in market leading companies poised for dynamic change and to back outstanding management teams to implement that change. We believe the most critical ingredients in a company’s success are the management team and the alignment of management incentives with those of the investors. Our portfolio companies have significant management-equity ownership as a key part of the investment strategy. Bain Capital professionals are significant investors in each transaction, which achieves an alignment of goals with portfolio company management teams.

The group has developed significant expertise in several business areas including technology, healthcare, retail, telecommunications, and industrial and consumer products. Transaction types include leveraged acquisitions, expansion capital, growth buyouts, turnarounds, consolidation plays, private buyouts, public company recapitalizations, convertible preferred investments, and financial restructurings.
