Schroders Capital has now successfully raised over $1.5 billion for private equity secondaries from its range of vehicles over the past three years, showcasing the firm’s ability to raise capital across the platform and meet clients’ investment needs.
This follows a $410 million successful final close of Schroders Capital Private Equity Secondaries IV which underscores Schroders Capital's strong track record and the confidence clients have in its secondaries strategy, which is primarily focused on GP-led and select LP investment opportunities in the lower middle-market buyout and growth-equity segments.
Schroders Capital has been particularly active in GP-led secondaries, successfully closing on more than 50 transactions since 2021. This expertise and experience position the firm as a trusted partner for both GPs and LPs seeking liquidity solutions.
Last year, Schroders Capital acted as the lead investor in the single asset continuation vehicle for Init, a digital transformation service provider, managed by German buyout manager EMERAM Capital Partners. Earlier this year, Schroders Capital led a multi-asset continuation vehicle with Volpi Capital, including geospatial data company Cyclomedia.
Schroders Capital's secondaries activity has a global reach, with dedicated teams in Zurich, New York, and Singapore. These strategically-located offices enable the firm to leverage its global network and expertise, providing investors with access to a diverse range of attractive secondaries opportunities across different geographies.
Christiaan van der Kam, Head of Secondary Investments Private Equity at Schroders Capital, said: "We are proud of the success and growth of our secondaries activity. Our strong track record, deep industry expertise and global presence position us well to continue delivering attractive investment opportunities to our clients."
