Over the past 35 years, the Private Equity Group has created 18 global buyout funds and made over 310 investments. 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 Private Equity 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.
Path into Private Equity Summer Analyst Program (PiPE)
At Bain Capital we work differently, tenacious in our desire to unearth the fundamentals that drive businesses and markets over the long term. We embrace our differences, bringing diverse perspectives and experiences to bear in making critical decisions. We partner differently, aligning our interests with those of our investors for lasting impact.
The Path into Private Equity (PiPE) program is a 10-week Summer Analyst internship designed to create unique opportunities in investing for traditionally underrepresented groups. Summer Analysts get exposure to a breadth of industries, multiple types of investments, and significant deal experience in a short period of time.
Have a voice from the outset
Summer Analysts learn how to become value-added investors by strategically assessing and evaluating a wide range of investment opportunities with a principal mindset. Our teams work collaboratively; every member of the team owns a critical piece of the diligence, and we encourage every member of the team to voice their point of view on complex business decisions. Summer Analysts may also gain operating experience through exposure to a variety of portfolio company issues, from potential add-on investments to liquidity options to improving core operations.
Accelerate your professional growth
Summer Analysts benefit from a comprehensive, week-long training program that is designed to introduce Bain Capital’s value-added investment approach. Our small class size and inclusive team provide each Summer Analyst with individualized guidance and mentorship throughout the 10-week program.
