Our investment strategy is to maximise investment returns, while minimising risk.
Our investment strategy is to maximise investment returns, while minimising risk. To achieve this, we use a proven strategy of investing in leading private equity funds and co-investing in direct investments with fund managers selected by SL Capital.
As a leading investor in private equity funds, we concentrate on buy-outs, historically in Western Europe but more recently in North America. This has been a winning strategy since we have been active in private equity. By focusing on buy-outs, we invest only in established businesses with products, customers and revenues. We will also make highly selective commitments to secondary funds where these have the clear potential for investment outperformance. This approach, combined with our wealth of experience, has allowed us to generate excellent returns for our clients.
We have a proactive management style to identify the leading fund managers and opportunities for investment in fund and direct investments. Portfolios are diversified by country, size of investment and industry sector, and include:
- pan-European funds
- North American funds
- pan-regional funds
- country specific funds
While access to most private companies occurs through our fund selection process, we also follow a strategy of selectively making co-investments alongside our chosen fund managers, to further enhance potential returns. These co-investments are typically made in companies that give an investment performance that is better than the portfolio average and with lower costs and charges.
