One New Bailey is our European headquarters, home to our Manchester Transactions Teams. We chose it for its prime location in the heart of Manchester city centre, on the banks of the historic River Irwell and adjacent to the citys bustling financial district, Spinningfields. A thriving city bursting with opportunity, Manchester offers fantastic opportunities for Benchmark International not least as the second biggest private equity city in Europe. Our other location in Greater Manchester is situated in Bolton and supports the functions of our European offices.
