Our Approach To Secondaries

Secondaries complement primary funds

Secondaries can complement primary fund commitments in a private investment portfolio by mitigating the J-curve. When executed correctly, secondaries may offer higher returns, lower fees, and more flexibility in portfolio construction.

But deal flow can be unpredictable. That’s why our long-standing private markets experience and resulting networks have allowed us to build the specialized industry relationships that help us have insight into the available market for these quick-turnaround investments.

Our Approach To Co-Investments

Control when and where you invest

Co-investments can help enhance returns, reduce fees, mitigate the J-curve, and manage risk.

Our highly specialized co-investment team has nearly 20 years’ average experience in the investment industry, with direct experience in co-investments and direct investments. Our sophisticated and attractive client base, combined with our long-standing relationships with GPs across the private markets spectrum, helps us to access multiple sources of co-investment deal flow.
