    • LP-led Secondaries – Invests in private equity funds by providing liquidity to investors who intend to sell their limited partner interests in private equity funds

  • Co-Investments: Invests directly into attractive deals alongside premier private equity firms in their core areas of expertise. Focuses on building high-quality, diversified portfolios of strategic co-investments primarily in buyouts and growth financings on a global basis and across multiple industries.
  • Primary Investments: Makes primary commitments to premier private equity funds. Creates diversified portfolios of private equity funds on a global basis and within multiple asset classes, including buyout, growth equity, venture capital and distressed / special situation investments.
