Brightstar Values

Our Commitment

Brightstar is committed to investing in the spirit of responsible business ethics and practices as outlined in the industry guidelines set forth in the American Investment Council Guidelines on Responsible Investment. We believe that the effective management of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues can create better risk-adjusted returns and help build sustainable businesses that benefit all stakeholders.

Sourcing

At the earliest stages of our investment process we screen every opportunity for ESG ‘red flags’ and conduct an industry analysis focusing on outlook and trends.

Due Diligence

In our pre-investment due diligence, we engage internal and external experts to identify and evaluate ESG risks and value creation opportunities on a per company basis. During this time, we seek to find areas with the greatest capability, potential, and likelihood for significant ESG impact.

Ownership Period

Throughout our ownership period we actively work with portfolio company management to develop a plan to address ESG risks and identify focused initiatives to generate long-term value through ESG.

Exit

As active owners our goal is to build businesses that generate value over the long-term. We aim to ‘future proof’ our companies and reduce ESG risks at the time exit while highlighting value enhancements made during our ownership period.

BEING LOCAL MATTERS, NOW MORE THAN EVER.

Our geographically distributed model is essential to our strategy. Through our eight offices across the country and local presence in additional key markets, enables us to work closely with our portfolio companies and keep our ears to the ground to access new opportunities.
