People are at the core of HarbourVest's culture. As a new member of the team this has been extremely important and helped me build solid foundations with which to grow. My manager helps me set targets and prioritize; my mentor helps me grow; my sponsor helps me succeed. This support system is why junior employees feel valued and invested.

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”).
