Bregal Sagemount, a private equity firm, has invested in Optima Partners Holdings, a provider of compliance advisory services.

Optima provides clients with compliance services to help them comply with regulatory bodies.

“As regulation continues to evolve on a global scale and investors become ever more demanding, having effective regulatory compliance systems and controls is not just a necessity, but a marketing tool for a successful investment business,” said Jonathan Saxton, CEO of Optima. “We first met Sagemount in 2017 and believe the team truly understands and supports Optima’s mission. This growth investment will allow us to continually enhance and grow our service offerings without sacrificing what we have become best known for, our ability to provide best-in-class service to our clients.”

Sagemount’s investment was led by Gene Yoon, Pavan Tripathi, Will Breskman and Nihar Sheth. Goodwin Procter served as legal counsel to Sagemount, and Malek Moss served as legal counsel to Optima. SVB Securities served as financial advisor to Sagemount.
