Our private equity portfolio provides long-term capital appreciation. We aim to generate higher risk-adjusted returns than we could obtain for clients in the public markets.
We invest in private companies through co-investments and funds, primarily targeting the industrial, consumer, technology/media/telecom and healthcare sectors. Our geographic focus is in North America and Europe.
The IMCO team uses a dynamic approach that could increase concentration to sectors, geographies or strategies in some periods, or limit our allocation to private equity in periods when opportunities are less rewarding.
When co-investing, we look for strong management teams leading companies in growing sectors, or companies with specific issues that offer an opportunity for improvement and value creation. With our external fund partnerships, we look for general partners who are experts in their core area and can drive value creation.
