Just last year, the 25th anniversary of its founding, proALPHA acquired the Swiss Codex Group and opened its first office in China.
The funds advised by Bregal acquired their majority holding in proALPHA in 2013 from members of the founding team and Beaufort Capital. In addition to capital, expertise in internationalisation and the development of an M&A strategy, Bregal supported proALPHA with an extensive network of experts.
