BGA Overview

There are roughly 30,000 private middle market companies in the industries serviced by BGA. They are worth roughly $4 trillion in enterprise value, and among their controlling owners are roughly 1 out of every 45 high net worth households. However, according to a recent survey, 94% of middle market companies are getting squeezed as they face competition of equal or greater intensity as compared to ten years ago. Additionally, rapid change, global competition, community erosion, generational transitions, and market challenges all must be recognized, addressed and resolved in order for such companies to survive, compete and prosper.

BGA is a curated international affiliate network of seasoned, professional services firms, which are dedicated to providing Financial Performance and Corporate Development Enhancement, Business Governance and Generational Transition Solutions, and Family Office Direct InvestmentSM Services to private middle market companies and their principal shareholders. BGA Members collaborate to provide the Seven Critical PracticesSM which address: Strategic Perspective, Capital Alignment, Growth Support, Governance Improvement, Value Monitoring, Shareholder Liquidity, and Generational Stewardship. This combined service offering enables BGA to develop and nourish long-term relationships with privately-owned middle market companies, which are an integral fabric of the global economy. BGA assists its clients to remain rooted in their communities and to be competitive, not just in the United States, but throughout the world.

BGA Affiliates pool experience, contacts, resources, and processes to create tailor-made, value-added solutions for clients. By combining the talents of leading middle market growth advisory and investment banking firms, BGA fulfills its mission to protect and enhance the vitality of such businesses, and, thereby, the contribution their stakeholders can make to their communities.

In addition to working directly with middle market companies, we are also working with local and state initiatives to develop programs and workshops to help address the many challenges facing family-owned and private middle market companies and their owners. BGA is a committed community partner with a purpose beyond profit.
