About Us

Established in 2002, BPEA is a Boston-based private equity firm focused on small and lower middle market buyout and growth investing, and customized investment solutions to meet investors’ private equity goals. We offer dedicated small market buyout and growth investment programs as well as focused healthcare-only programs. We build diversified and balanced private equity programs that invest in fund managers and directly in companies.

BPEA continues the legacy of co-founder Peter Brooke, founder of global private equity firms, TA Associates and Advent International. At BPEA, our team has completed buyout and growth investments in over 55 managers and 140 companies. We believe our knowledge and experience allow us to make well-informed investment decisions and add value post investment to fund managers and portfolio company management teams.

With established investment and back-office resources, BPEA applies an institutional investment discipline including thoughtful portfolio construction, thorough due diligence, detailed monitoring, and transparent reporting to limited partners.


As a long-term investor in private companies and a valued partner to both new and established private equity managers, BPEA has a well-developed industry network. We utilize these relationships to source investment opportunities, enhance our due diligence, inform our decision making, and act as a resource for portfolio fund and company management teams.
