Our Private Equity strategy leverages long term relationships with best-in-class global strategic partners, offering clients efficient access to differentiated and diversified investment opportunities around the world. We complement our fund commitments with a highly experienced team capable of direct and co-investing, resulting in a resilient portfolio.

While other investors deal exclusively in direct investments or one-off funds, IMCO’s Private Equity approach is different.

Our highly experienced Private Equity team creates multiple layers of value for clients through fund commitments, direct investments and co-investments, delivering outperformance and efficient diversification. We invest alongside best-in-class strategic fund partners, including Ardian, Kohlberg & Company, and Nordic Capital, who value our ability to expertly structure and execute flexible transactions tailored to their needs with speed. Our highly collaborative and engaged approach creates value for our portfolio companies.

We are focused on North American and European companies with strong management teams across sectors—industrial, services, consumer, technology, media and communications, healthcare and financial services. We aim to double our portfolio by more than $6 billion by 2025, generating strategic value and risk-adjusted returns for our partners and clients alike.
