With C$2.0 billion in capital under management, 20 partner companies and 33 fully realized investments since 1994, Birch Hill is the leader in long-term value creation in the Canadian mid-market.

Mid-market focus

Our 20 professional staff provide the bench strength and skills to allow us to take on complex and sustained investment partnerships.

Constructive ownership model

We are dedicated to principles of fairness, honesty and open collaboration in all of our relationships.

Impressive track record

The Birch Hill team has achieved superior and consistent returns including a 20 percent cumulative average rate of EBITDA growth on actively employed capital since 1995. This record of success led to Birch Hill closing its fourth private equity fund, Birch Hill Equity Partners IV, LP at the beginning of 2011. This fund was capped at $1.04 billion, exceeding its original target of $850 million due to strong interest from both existing and new investors.
