Bregal Milestone is backed by Bregal Investments, a global private equity investment firm that has invested more than €15 billion since inception in 2002.
Funded by a sixth-generation family foundation, Bregal Investments brings experience and stability to all of its investment activities. Bregal Investments is the private equity investment business of Switzerland-based COFRA Holding AG.
The COFRA story dates back to brothers Clemens and August Brenninkmeijer, who founded a textile wholesaling operation in the Netherlands in 1841 that started what is today a worldwide chain of over 1,800 C&A clothing retail stores. Out of its real estate operations, the group developed Redevco, owner of a European property portfolio of over €7.5 billion. Bregal was founded in 2002 to consolidate and grow COFRA’s private equity investment activities.
