    Commitments to GP-centered investments

For more than 20 years we have been utilizing the secondary market to build differentiated private equity portfolios with value creation driven by our high quality GP relationships.

We execute on this strategy without relying on financial engineering in making investments, which we believe sets us apart in an industry that can be overly focused on capturing short-term discounts at the expense of long-term returns.
