Fund Placement

Reach. Our platform is global and we source capital from institutional investors around the world. We have close relationships with every class of investor including: public pension plans, sovereign wealth funds, consultants, funds of funds, insurance companies, corporate pension funds, endowments and foundations, family offices and wealth advisory firms.

The strength of our LP relationships is derived from our reputation as a thought leader within the private equity industry and from the highly selective process we follow in adding a new client to our platform. In many ways, our rigorous screening and due diligence process emulates the process performed by the investors we cover.

Focus. Our aim is to limit our global fund mandates to between five and seven at any given time; with a primary focus on fund opportunities of between $200 million and $2.0 billion in size. This limitation ensures that we can dedicate senior partner-level attention to every client.

Diligence. We combine a top-down and bottom-up segmentation into a single figure process that enables us to screen and measure each opportunity against five key points of valuation: (i) team cohesion (ii) track record attribution (iii) sourcing and operating advantage (iv) global and local market positioning and (v) sector and industry dynamics. This combination provides a final segmentation that draws on the relative merits of both approaches and results in a confidence map of those managers most likely to outperform the broader market and deliver superior returns to the investor community.
