What we do

How do we do it? We start by defining the right questions; then we dig deep into the numbers as the basis for creating solution.

Like other offices, Bain Chicago is committed to client success and follows the "deliver results, not reports" philosophy. We believe that our advice makes a difference and are not afraid to put our money where our mouth is. Bain & Company was the first consulting firm that made its fees dependent on realized results.

We were also the first firm to co-invest in advised acquisitions. The returns on these investments reflect the impact of our strategies.

The belief that our consultants must measure their success in terms of the financial results of our clients is the most salient feature of our culture. We not only talk the talk, but also walk the walk, as we can say with pride that our clients on average have outperformed the stock market by 4 to 1.
