Strategic Partners Fund Solutions is a leading investor in the secondary private equity market. Our goal is to provide individual and institutional investors the opportunity to monetize and manage their illiquid investment holdings. We have executed many types of transactions, from single fund transfers to complex, structured portfolio solutions. We work hard to understand the unique circumstances of our partners and offer thoughtful alternatives. Investors value our guidance and support as it relates to private fund commitments, co-investments and portfolio management.
- To sellers and general partners, Strategic Partners is viewed as a trustworthy and well-respected counterparty. From our start in 2000, we have raised over $16 billion of capital commitments, completed over 800 transactions, and acquired over 1,800 limited partnership interests. Strategic Partners is among the most active secondary buyers in the world, closing one to two transactions per week on average. We pride ourselves in providing solutions on a fair, timely and confidential basis.
- For our limited partners, we strive to provide the benefits of secondary investing which may include (i) reducing blind pool risk; (ii) mitigating the “J-Curve” with shorter duration profiles; and (iii) diversifying exposure across industries, investment strategies, fund sponsors, geographies and vintage years. This is achieved by utilizing our deep network of global relationships and focusing on a detailed, bottom-up analysis of the underlying assets. We believe that our market position and proprietary investment database reinforce our reputation as a nimble and knowledgeable investor.
Strategic Partners has over 30 dedicated secondary investment professionals located in New York, London and San Francisco, and leverages Blackstone’s global presence. Our core group of senior professionals has worked together for over a decade. The secondary investment team is supported by an experienced accounting and operations team, enabling the successful execution, monitoring and reporting of our investment holdings. We believe our long-standing platform translates into a distinct understanding of the dynamic secondary market.
