BIP as a shareholder

The agreement on a common strategy and development plan with other shareholders and management of our investee companies is a critical step preceding an acquisition by BIP. We see the relationship with investee companies as a partnership based on mutual trust and strive to actively support management and co-shareholders with our experience and expertise.

As a financial investor, we are willing to provide the strategic support needed to drive the development of the company and to follow its growth trajectory without interfering in day-to-day management.

As a consequence of our evergreen-structure with a medium- to long-term investment horizon, our portfolio companies have sufficient time to implement the commonly agreed development plan.

In order to facilitate our involvement and the best use of our competences, BIP will request appropriate board representation in the case of Private Equity investments.
