The middle-market offers a diverse, consistently investable segment of the private equity universe. Our strategy is to invest in established and emerging leveraged buyout funds in North America and to co-invest with those equity sponsors. This distinctive strategy of augmenting fund investing with co-investing enhances our investment decisions and can result in exceptional investments. Co-investing provides extraordinary insight into the capabilities of an equity sponsor and creates a "virtuous cycle" of continuously investing in proven managers.
As a result of our teams' deep expertise in the North American middle-market, we have extensive relationships that generate priority and recurring access to excellent deal flow and unsurpassed due diligence capabilities.
