What we offer our clients

Primary=Investments

Primary Investments

Primary investments are those made in private equity funds during their initial capital-raising. A portfolio of primary fund investments, also known as a fund-of-funds, gives investors access to the expertise of multiple fund managers and a variety of companies through a single investment. Our long experience as a primary investor means our clients can benefit from the following:

  • A rigorous, time-tested evaluation process;
  • Access to leading managers globally, providing exceptional choice of opportunities;
  • More than 25 years of relationship building, so we fully know our general partners and can be confident in our investment decisions;
  • A process with ESG interaction at its core.
Secondary-Investments

Secondary Investments

Secondary investments involve the buying and selling of pre-existing investor commitments to private equity funds. We are well placed and active in the secondary market where our deep relationships, strong reputation and network of intermediaries give us a distinct advantage and allow us to offer our clients excellent access to this market.

Co-investments

Co-Investments

Private equity co-investments, or direct investments, are investments made alongside another GP directly into companies. There are many benefits to co-investing, including the ability to gain exposure to what we believe are attractive investment opportunities whilst avoiding a layer of fees. Again, our strong, long-standing relationships with GPs, combined with our proven experience, mean we are leading players in this segment of the market.

Bonaccord Capital

Bonaccord Capital Partners

A direct private equity investment strategy seeking to acquire minority equity interests in established alternative asset management companies. The core focus includes mid-market private equity, private credit, real estate, and real assets. The strategy aims to generate a current yield profile that does not rely on leverage.

Equity Trust

Investment Trust

The investment objective is to achieve long-term total returns through holding a diversified portfolio of private equity funds and direct investments into private companies alongside private equity managers (“co-investments”), a majority of which will have a European focus.
