Distribution Management

We work with our clients to enhance the realized value of their distributions of publicly‐traded stock through active portfolio management, increasing overall returns.

Hamilton Lane is a specialist in managing private equity distributions for limited partners. Our distribution management business creates customized programs specifically tailored to client objectives and risk tolerances with the overall goal of enhancing returns on distributed private market investments. We launched this unique business line with the 2013 acquisition of Shott Capital Management, which boasts an expert team of professionals who have been managing post-distribution assets for more than 20 years.


We take a proactive approach in researching our universe of private equity-backed companies, enabling our investment team to have an opinion on a company prior to lock-up release.


Our trading desk has handled over 25,000 distributions. We focus on finding liquidity in distribution related securities and in competitive selling environments.


Our operations team on average has over 20 years of distribution management experience. Operations oversees the post-distribution process from notification to the return of capital.
