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.
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.
