Business Services

This sector is showing attractive growth as the benefits of outsourcing resulting in rising service levels and efficiency, lower costs – are increasingly recognised. Demand for outsourced solutions is increasing with the need to deliver better value for money, tighter regulation and the increasing sophistication of outsourced providers.

Bridgepoint has an established track record in this sector, and we remain attracted to its inherent growth, its high visibility of earnings, opportunities for geographic expansion and the benefits of focused management for 'people businesses'.

We are particularly interested in:

  • Professional services and BPO
  • Property and facility services
  • Testing, Inspection and Certification
  • Transport services

We are also attracted to opportunities arising from themes such as:

  • Outsourcing driven by regulatory, legislative or risk management requirements
  • Operators seeking internationalisation, often through acquisition
  • Businesses that would benefit from privatisation and liberalisation trends
