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.

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.
