Hamilton Lane Again Named to Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America

August 17, 2016

Bala Cynwyd, Penn.  – Hamilton Lane, a leading global private markets asset management firm, has been ranked by Inc. magazine as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This is the second year that Hamilton Lane has earned a spot on the Inc. 5000, an exclusive annual ranking of the nation's most entrepreneurial and successful businesses.

Committed to offering investors unique access to the private markets, Hamilton Lane has continued to strategically develop its global platform while enjoying strong investor demand for its various service offerings. Over the past 18 months, the firm successfully closed several funds above target, including Hamilton Lane Strategic Opportunities Fund 2016; Hamilton Lane Private Equity Fund IX; and Hamilton Lane Co-Investment Fund III. In addition, the firm expanded across product lines, holding the successful close of its first Global SMID Fund for investors in South America and its first Small Business Investment Company (SBIC) Fund for small businesses throughout the state of New York.

Hamilton Lane has supported its growth by significantly deepening its expertise and local presence, broadening its senior management bench with several promotions around the world, and opening an office in Seoul, South Korea – its third in Asia and 12th globally.

"As we celebrate our 25th anniversary, we are thrilled to earn a place again this year on the Inc. 5000 list," said Mario Giannini, CEO of Hamilton Lane. "Our continued growth is made possible by the dedication and contributions of Hamilton Lane employees who, day in and day out, are committed to delivering unmatched client service and consistently meaningful investment results."

Inclusion in the Inc. 5000 is based on companies' revenue growth over a three-year period. Hamilton Lane's revenue has increased by more than 100 percent over the past three years, cementing the firm's spot on this year’s list. Since first being named to the Inc. 5000 in 2012, Hamilton Lane’s ranking has jumped more than 20 percent.
