An experienced partner that leverages a huge network

We help investors gain exposure to secondary transactions through the work of our dedicated transaction team of 19 secondary specialists. They have acquired more than USD 15.8 billion of original commitments over the last 22 years. They continuously source transactions in North America, Europe and Asia through our own network of private equity fund managers. Leveraging an existing portfolio of more than 1000 private equity funds, they can price assets and structure transactions efficiently. The team is supported by a larger international team of more than 150 private equity professionals based at investment hubs in New York, London, Dublin, Pfaeffikon (near Zurich), Hong Kong and Beijing. The diversity of the team, in which 30 nationalities and 25 different languages are represented, positions us well to source and evaluate transactions globally.

Institutionalized investment approach

Our strong team and institutionalized investment approach have enabled us to build up a 22-year track record that comprises more than 15.8 billion US dollars of original commitments. During this time, we have consistently outperformed global private and public equity benchmarks, delivering compelling risk-adjusted returns to our investors. We have also already returned more than 100% of contributed secondary capital to investors since inception, effectively de-risking our track record.

LGT Capital Partners has provided liquidity solutions to private equity investors in more than 320 transactions since 1998. We have helped institutional investors proactively manage their portfolios by acquiring all or a portion of their private equity assets, including buyout, growth equity, venture capital, infrastructure, real estate and special situations funds that invest in Europe, Americas and Asia. LGT Capital Partners' privileged access to more than 1000 funds, in which we are already invested, enables us to react quickly to investors' inquiries.  In addition, LGT Capital Partners is a substantial primary fund investor globally, which makes us an attractive partner for future fundraisings. As a result, LGT Capital Partners is considered favorably as a secondary buyer by fund managers.

LGT Capital Partners has also developed significant expertise in solutions led by general partners, in which LGT Capital Partners has executed complex transactions. This has included supporting managers during a spin-off process, replacing an historical anchor investor, acquiring a strip of private equity assets and providing single-asset equity solutions. We can also propose bespoke solutions to fund managers on a global basis, leveraging our dedicated transaction team of 19 secondary specialists based at investment hubs in Pfaeffikon (near Zurich), New York and Hong Kong. They are supported by a larger international team of more than 150 private equity professionals.
