Heritage icon
Heritage

Bregal Milestone is backed by Bregal Investments, a global private equity investment firm that has invested more than €12 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.

Responsible Investing icon
Responsible investing

Bregal Milestone is committed to high environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards which can help capture opportunity and avoid risks that occur at the intersection of sustainability and commerciality.

We believe there is a strong correlation between sustainable value creation and socially and environmentally responsible business practices. As such, we consider environmental, labour and human rights practices, business ethics and corporate governance in all our investment processes. This allows us to collectively monitor progress, raise ESG awareness, and share best practices across our portfolio.
