Our Capabilities

  • Focused, Strategy-Specific Portfolios
  • Complete Solutions
  • Customized, Separate Account Solutions
  • Private Equity

    Our private equity programs focus on managers that are sector specialists or practice hybrid styles. They include geographically-focused programs in the U.S., Europe and other developed markets outside the U.S., and select emerging markets.

    Our U.S. and European programs are built around three investment themes: 1) value-driven and operational private equity investments; 2) growth investments; and 3) distressed, turnaround investments. In emerging markets, we have a fourth added theme of backing venture capital and growth equity managers that tap into opportunities driven by the growing consumer class in select emerging markets countries.

  • Venture Capital

    We are proud of a history of venture investing that dates back to 1990. Our venture capital programs are concentrated and emphasize early-stage investments and select secondaries and co-investments. We prefer funds with verifiable track records in the information technology, consumer, and healthcare sectors and seek to leverage our history as a venture investor to identify capacity-constrained funds around the world.

  • Real Assets and Sustainability

    Our programs have evolved since 1989 to include a growing mix of traditional natural resources as well as sustainable sectors and other real assets investment strategies. Today, our approach includes energy production and services, power and energy infrastructure, renewables, mining, agriculture and timber sectors. 

    We partner with managers who execute on niche, hands-on and value-added strategies that typically target smaller companies with lower finding and development costs and employ lower levels of leverage. We have a history of selecting investments that actively incorporate ESG considerations into their investment processes.

  • Co-Investments

    Our co-investment programs are designed to provide dedicated exposure to direct opportunities in private companies in partnership with our manager and investor network. To source co-investments, we leverage our advisory board seats and extensive manager relationships. We believe this collaborative approach offers unique access to deal flow and a prudent framework for diligence of potential investments.

  • Secondaries

    Our secondaries programs are designed to provide diversified exposure to private capital across managers, strategies, regions, industries, vintage years, and portfolio companies. We often emphasize smaller transactions with fewer participants and target investments that can be purchased at discounts to their intrinsic value. To source opportunities, we leverage our advisory board seats and extensive network of manager and secondary industry relationships.

  • For a more comprehensive private capital solution, we combine our private equity, venture capital and real assets programs - including natural resources and sustainable investments - into a "single-fund" solution.

    For those seeking to gain exposure to private equity opportunities around the world, we also offer a global private equity program with pre-set geographical allocations to the U.S., Europe and other developed markets, and select emerging markets as outlined in our private equity strategy-specific approach.

  • We build customized solutions in private capital by tailoring programs in private equity, venture capital and real assets - including natural resources and sustainable sectors and strategies - to meet the portfolio needs of our investors. These solutions range from comprehensive mandates across strategies to complete portfolios with specific solutions in a particular geography or strategy. In addition to direct primary managers, custom accounts may also include exposure to secondaries and co-investments.
