Throughout our history, Bain Capital has built long-term relationships with our Limited Partners (LPs). They include many leading endowments, charitable foundations, public and corporate pensions, financial institutions, funds of funds, family offices and sovereign wealth funds. We have nearly 800 Private Equity Limited Partners, with the majority having invested with us for well over a decade.
Collectively, 8-10% of our private equity funds’ commitments come from our professionals, far in excess of industry convention and reflective of our strong principal investor mentality and confidence in our ability to generate industry-leading returns. We believe this creates a strong alignment of interests with our LPs.
In addition, we believe that private ownership of the management company is another source of alignment with our LPs. The result is a clear and primary focus on generating superior investment returns for our investors.
