Private equity, venture capital, sustainability, and natural resources solutions

CF Private Equity seeks to combine the scale of a leading global asset manager with the nimble flexibility of a focused boutique, with access to many of the world’s leading managers in private equity, venture capital, sustainability, and natural resources strategies. Our global portfolios are constructed with a diversified mix of primaries, secondaries, and co-investments, with a focus on smaller and growing companies backed by geographic and sector specialist general partners.

We provide a diverse range of strategy-specific solutions, each managed by a highly experienced team of investment professionals.

Specialized Programs

Our co-investment programs provide dedicated exposure to direct opportunities in private companies. Our secondaries programs offer diversified exposure to private capital across managers, strategies, regions, industries, vintage years, and portfolio companies.

Complete Portfolio Solutions

To create a 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. We also have a global private equity program with pre-set geographical allocations to the U.S., Europe, and other developed markets, as well as select emerging markets.

Customized Account Solutions

Our customized solutions are designed with investors' specific portfolio needs in mind. 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.
