Founded as Brookside Capital in 1996, Bain Capital Public Equity is a global alternative equity platform built upon the hallmark investment philosophy of Bain Capital - intense fundamental research on industries and companies that helps derive unique and actionable investment insights. On that framework, we place additional emphasis on analytical portfolio construction and risk management, seeking to isolate alpha and generate attractive returns with a low correlation to the broad equity markets.

Deep domain expertise across our five core industry verticals.

Promotes valuable insights and a global perspective.
Bain Capital Public Equity deploys capital across multiple equity strategies with varying risk/return profiles and vehicle structures. Our investment objective is to generate attractive absolute returns over a full market and industry cycle with low correlation to the equity markets. We are flexible in how we engage with our investors, seeking to be true long-term partners.
We employ a low-net fundamental long/short equity strategy, seeking opportunities globally across each of our five core areas of industry expertise. Our differentiated style and approach to portfolio construction combines concentration in our highest conviction long and short ideas with targeted hedging strategies seeking to mitigate potential factor risk.
We employ a market neutral, sector-specific hedged equity strategy that focuses solely on global industrial companies. The strategy seeks to generate high uncorrelated alpha through portfolio concentration using pair trades and idiosyncratic long and short ideas.
Our co-investment strategy is opportunistic by nature and varies over time as market conditions change and individual investment opportunities materialize. Investment strategies may include late stage pre-IPO, public company structural mispricing, and anchororder IPO investment opportunities.
We partner with our clients to drive incremental value, including transparency and service, shared insights, potential co-investments and strategic relationships.
