PE seeks higher returns by investing in a wide range of less liquid and longer-term private equity assets; and PE focuses on high alignment of interests between shareholders and management and emphasizes long-term value creation to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns. By maintaining relationships with over 150 private equity fund managers and other specialized partners, we generate skill-based returns throughout the investment cycle in a number of ways:
- When deciding to invest by accessing the best opportunities, superior information, unique insights and expert structuring and financing of transactions;
- During the holding period through careful stewardship, enhanced governance, and improvement in assets, operations and profitability; and
- Upon exit by selecting optimal means and timing and concluding on favorable terms.
