Since the establishment of our business, the Glendower Capital team has been solely and fully dedicated to secondaries. We believe that specialisation offers a distinctive advantage and reduces potential conflicts and distractions.
Glendower pursues a distinctive two-pronged strategy targeting LP fund portfolios as well as GP-led transactions to capitalize on the secondary market evolution.
We have operational scale with 40 professionals, an in-house database of over 700+funds and 300+ fund managers. We systematically underwrite $5m to $500m funds’ portfolios as well as single fund positions providing comprehensive solutions for tail-end portfolios, complex private feeder portfolios as well as difficult to value assets.
Due to our reputation and long-standing experience with challenging transactions, Glendower has developed a reputation for being a reliable partner of choice for fund managers and investors. We underwrite GP-led transactions ranging from $50m to $500m including assets sales, fund recaps, strip sales, and spinouts.
At Glendower, we have incorporated the UN PRI ESG principles into all stages of the investment process as a tool to manage risk, drive returns and create new investment opportunities.
Our ESG philosophy brings the entire platform together, with the deal team and the investment committee taking ultimate responsibility for the ESG analysis and ongoing monitoring.
We are an active owner, and, where possible, seek opportunities to partner with the underlying managers to help drive improvements in our portfolio investments. In addition, we maintain and keep the dialogue with the broader industry to share best practice.
