Since 2003, Cygnus Capital Partners
has been active in the private equity secondary markets, covering
both the sale of portfolios of private equity and real estate funds
and portfolios of companies. Additionally, we have raised capital
for secondary fund managers.
Throughout the past 9 years, as the secondary
market has developed into a mainstream asset class, we have developed
considerable secondary expertise and access to a broad range of
potential secondary buyers including: sovereign funds, private equity
secondary funds, funds of funds, pension funds, insurance companies
and family offices.
In the ever-more-efficient private
equity secondary market, we work with some of the World's most sophisticated
buyers of portfolios of funds and portfolios of companies. We have
adopted a highly discrete process to place assets confidentially,
away from the public auction markets that are now dominated by specialist
brokers and on-line dealers.
