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.

Targeted investment solutions

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

  • Buyouts & Growth Equity
  • Venture Capital
  • Sustainability
  • Natural Resources
  • Co-investments
  • Secondaries

Complete Solutions

For investors who need a comprehensive private equity solution, we offer a single solution that combines our buyouts and growth equity, venture capital and real as­sets programs-including natural resources and sustainable investments. 

Customized Account Solutions

We partner with a select number of larger investors to build customized solutions in private equity. We work collaboratively to tailor programs, often structured as a “fund-of-one", in private equity and real assets (including natural resources and sustainable sectors and strategies) to meet the portfolio needs of our investors. These relationships range from comprehensive multi-strategy mandates to completion portfolios focused on a particular geog­raphy or strategy. In addition to direct primary managers, custom accounts may also include exposure to secondaries and co-investments.
