Since 2000, we have focused on offering our clients access to market areas where we believe there is more opportunity to outperform.
While many firms operate in the middle market, we believe there are few of our size that have the breadth to build portfolios focused on primary, secondary, and co-investment opportunities across both developed and emerging markets.
Middle-market opportunities reside around the world. As primary fund investors, our team has built expansive relationships with general partners and has gained insights into the private equity community across both developed and emerging markets. Our established due diligence processes, proprietary pricing models, and internal and external deal structuring expertise help us optimize portfolios for our clients.
Drawing on our firm’s global multi-asset-class investment platform, we gain insight into diverse asset classes, regions, sectors, and trends from around the globe.
