Impressive track record

The Birch Hill team has achieved superior and consistent returns including a 17 percent cumulative average rate of EBITDA growth on actively employed capital since 1995. This record of success led to Birch Hill closing its fifth private equity fund, Birch Hill Equity Partners V, LP at the end of 2015. This fund was capped at $1.3 billion, exceeding its original target of
$1 billion due to strong interest from both existing and new investors.
