Diversity & Inclusion

Our longstanding commitment to progress

Building strength through diversity

By embracing diversity we can generate new ideas to build new creative solutions

Being diverse and inclusive is core to our success. Our recent work includes strengthening or expanding relevant policies (Global Parent Leave Policy, Global Respectful Workplace Policy), introducing a diverse summer internship program, and providing conscious inclusion training to hiring managers around the world.

We advocate for increased diversity and inclusion across private markets. Our senior leaders are members of and hold board and advisory positions with NAIC, AAAIM, SEO, and Level20. The firm is also a founding signatory to ILPA’s Diversity In Action initiative and have signed NAIC’s Diverse Alternative Investment Industry Statement.

We’re proud of the progress we’ve made, but we’re not there yet. We’ll keep asking questions, listening, and making decisions that bring us closer to our goals.

Continuation solutions encompass a host of transaction types in which a GP secures interim liquidity and/or additional primary capital for their LPs in a strongly performing asset, or set of assets, that the GP will continue to own and control. Specifically, they include continuation funds, new funds created by GPs for the purpose of acquiring the asset(s) that continue to be managed by the same GP and capitalized by one or several secondary buyers, or equity recapitalizations involving a direct equity or structured equity investment into a portfolio company. These transactions can also include a parallel investment from the GP’s latest fund into that same pool of assets (a “cross-fund trade”).
