We thought long and hard about the characteristics we wanted in an investment partner: capability, alignment on ambition, and shared values. BPC stood out by a mile, due to their deep operational expertise, understanding of our markets, and their sheer energy. Based on our experience so far, we couldn’t be happier with BPC.
