Portfolio Advisors Closes Largest Fund in Firm’s 28-Year History
Darien, Connecticut – January 2022 – Private markets specialist Portfolio Advisors, LLC (“PA”) is pleased to announce the successful closing of its fourth private equity secondaries fund, Portfolio Advisors Secondary Fund IV (“PASF IV”). PASF IV is the largest fund in the firm’s 28-year history, closing on $2.67 billion, materially exceeding its original $1.5 billion target.
The fund secured commitments from approximately 400 new and existing limited partners ranging from pension funds, foundations, endowments and insurance companies to family offices and high net worth clients. Approximately half of the limited partners come from the United States, with the remaining client base spread globally across Canada, Europe, South America and Asia.
“We are extremely grateful to all of our investors for their support and excited to continue generating attractive risk-adjusted returns in this robust secondary environment,” says Hugh Perloff, Managing Director and Co-Head of LP Secondary Investments.
To date, PASF IV has closed 28 transactions representing approximately $1.7 billion in exposure across 120 underlying fund partnerships. “With the secondary market achieving record deal volume in 2021 and more growth expected, we can be highly selective given our strong long-term relationships with high quality managers,” says Patrick Gerbracht, Managing Director and Co-Head of LP Secondary Investments.
Portfolio Advisors began investing in secondaries in 2002 and has executed more than $7.0 billion of secondary transactions across multiple vehicles to date. The firm deploys primary capital commitments of nearly $3 billion annually on behalf of its clients, giving the firm a strong position in the sponsor community as a strategic secondary buyer. These relationships with a wide range of top tier general partners allow the firm to provide its investors with diverse and highly sought access to specialty secondary opportunities.
