BC Partners is a leading alternative investment manager focused on private equity, credit, and real estate, with deep networks across Europe and North America. Davies, provider of specialist professional services and technology solutions across the risk and insurance value chain, has experienced accelerated growth in recent years. Through both organic growth and strategic acquisitions, Davies has increased its annual proforma revenues six-fold in four years and has expanded into the US, Bermuda and Canada. This rapid expansion presented the need for an established partner with a global network and sector expertise.
We at BC have been watching Davies’ progression over the past few years with keen interest, as this was a business we knew had serious potential. Over this period it has expanded geographically, successfully entering and establishing a presence in the US, Canadian and Bermudian markets, completed more than 30 acquisitions, diversified its service offering and cemented its position as a clear leader in its sector – all whilst upholding its reputation for providing excellent service to its customers."
