We work in partnership with investors to create private market portfolios that are focused on outcomes such as capital growth, income yield & risk diversification.



We offer a range of products for insurance companies, pensions and savings customers, and wealth managers; including an innovative global private markets fund.


Our approach

Our approach to building outcome based client portfolios is to seek the best investment ideas across private equity, infrastructure, real estate, natural resources and private credit. We invest in sustainable long term themes and manage risk through dynamic asset allocation and detailed portfolio construction.


Transparent investment process

We have a structured, disciplined and transparent investment process that gives our clients a greater confidence in understanding the real risks of their private markets portfolio, including a proactive approach to environmental, social and governance factors.

Risk warning
Risk warning - Investment involves risk. The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and an investor may get back less than the amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future results.
