BIP was founded in April 2000 with the incorporation of BGL Investment Partners S.A. (BIP I) at the joint initiative of Banque Générale du Luxembourg, now BGL BNP Paribas S.A., and a group of private investors in Luxembourg. In the same year, BIP I was quoted on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange.
BGL BNP Paribas progressively decreased its share ownership. Various Luxembourg families invested in BIP I, transforming it into a family-backed company. BIP I changed its name to BIP Investment Partners S.A.
BIP I repositioned its approach, building on a strong balance sheet, excellent reputation, reinforced team and significant funds available for further investment. BIP I has since been ideally positioned to pursue its long-term value creation aim for the benefits of all its stakeholders.
BIP I delisted from the Luxembourg Stock Exchange.
Goldman Sachs Asset Management (the “GSAM Funds”) acquired a significant stake in BIP I.
BIP announced the first closing of BIP FUND (SCA), SICAR (BIP II) managed by BIP Capital Partners and supported by the majority of the shareholders of BIP I, including GSAM Funds, and new investors.
In July 2018, BIP announced the final closing of BIP FUND (SCA), SICAR.
In November 2021, BIP announced the closing of BIP Interim SCSp.
