Strategic Opportunities Fund
This $150 million fund will deliver curated deal flow to a small group of limited partners. We have designed the fund to operate as an extension of a corporate entity’s strategy team or a workforce multiplier for family offices and other entities. Our global investment team will meet with each limited partner, understand the areas of interest and deliver a bespoke dealflow. Limited partners will have discretion over capital deployment, providing a measure of independence not available in blond pool funds.
