Private equity firm Bridgepoint published its third-quarter results, which showed continued progress in the company’s long-term strategies.

The company reported assets under management (AUM) of €29.2bn ($33.1bn), up 58% year over year, and fee-paying AUM of €17.8bn, up 42%. 

The business said fund portfolios also continued to perform well, benefitting from continued improvement in economies across Europe and underpinned by strong realisations. The company also said that €2.1bn of gross exits had been completed in the quarter.


The company said fundraising was now underway for Bridgepoint Europe VII and continues to progress well for Bridgepoint Credit Direct Lending III and Bridgepoint Credit Opportunities IV.

“Bridgepoint Europe VI, Bridgepoint’s current private equity flagship fund, ended the quarter 88% invested having recently completed three new investments, including ACT the sustainability solutions provider in the Netherlands and PTV the traffic solutions systems company in Germany,” it said.

“Bridgepoint Development Capital IV, which started investing earlier this year, has made four new investments in 2021 to date and is now 18% invested in line with plan,” it added.

The company also noted that Bridgepoint Credit had made good progress during the quarter and deployed some €800m of capital.

“Alongside Bridgepoint’s organic strategy of deepening its key middle market positions in private equity and private credit, the business also continues to make progress in its medium-term strategic objectives of broadening its investment platform,” Bridgepoint said.

The company said it also remains confident in its financial outlook for 2021 and 2022 and its financial performance guidance remains unchanged from that given in the half-year update.

Results for the year ending 31 December 2021 will be published on 24 March 2022, the company noted.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
