Equity Opportunities Fund Portfolio Summary

Equity Opportunities Fund V (Currently in Market)

  • Early performance for Equity Opportunities Fund V is solid, having broken the J-curve in only three quarters. The seed portfolio remains well-positioned and largely assumes flat or contracted multiples at exit. 
  • Strong seed portfolio with $1.2 billion committed across 29 deals that are backed by robust industry tailwinds and varied value creation theses.    
  • Continued momentum in fundraising, with closed commitments totaling more than $1.billionwith pending and soft-circled commitments standing at more than $2 billion.
  • Investments to date have been in hard-to-reach direct SMID buyout and growth equity deals, alongside best-in-class managers. 
  • Thoughtfully diversified portfolio that we believe is well-insulated from volatile market conditions and macro concerns.
