HLSF VI Strategy

Our goal is to provide investors with significant capital appreciation primarily by building a diversified portfolio of secondary investments. We have a flexible approach that allows us to position the Fund in line with the best opportunities across the entire secondary landscape. As a result, we believe HLSF VI represents a comprehensive secondary solution for investors’ portfolios. Our strategy will focus on identifying secondary opportunities where we believe we have a distinct competitive advantage and purchasing high-quality assets — managed by who we consider to be leading general partners — at attractive prices. This approach, coupled with our differentiated deal flow, creates a platform for identifying and executing better risk-adjusted secondary opportunities.

Why Now?

Hamilton Lane Secondary Fund VI is just beginning its investment period (no legacy seed portfolio) and is well-positioned to fully capitalize on the attractive current market opportunity. Hamilton Lane's relationships, scale, and flexible mandate continue to provide a massive opportunity set. Our proprietary information, micro approach to underwriting, and bias toward quality are as important as ever in the current market environment. Download the brief update on the current secondary market and the opportunity set we are seeing today.
