About Us

OUR UNIQUE MODEL, LEADERSHIP AND STRUCTURAL STRENGTHS

Smart & Connected

DISTINCT AND DIVERSE, YET ALIGNED FOR GROWTH

Diversification is a key principle of intelligent investment and underpins our strategy. BrightSphere created the multi-boutique model and over 4 decades has evolved it to connect the diverse perspectives, entrepreneurialism, expertise and talent in our Affiliates to high-growth and in demand segments.

We align incentives for growth through a partnership structure that provides each of our Affiliates with meaningful equity ownership and profit interests in their own firms and preserves the unique culture that has made them successful. Our Affiliates generate strong free cash flow which is deployed to support their continued growth and generate strong long-term returns for our shareholders.
