For over 20 years, we have been a pioneer in the global secondaries market, focusing on non-auctioned, often complex, unlevered acquisitions of small, concentrated portfolios.
We target portfolios typically comprising one to six companies with substantial value creation, investing €10 to 50 million per transaction.
Since 2000, we have acquired over €1.8 billion of original commitments across 160+ transactions.
We provide our investors exceptional access to hand-picked portfolios of robust companies, targeting outperformance. Through our large deal flow of opportunities and clear focus on small transactions, we build unique portfolios of investments which will unlikely be replicated in the portfolios of other secondaries investors.

Thanks to our extensive network and trusted reputation as a reliable long-term investment partner, Unigestion gets privileged access to off-market deals. Our investment team often gains early and often exclusive introductions to potential sellers of private equity assets.
Our secondary deal flow comes from three main sources:
Fund managers – our extensive network of over 500 specialist managers in the global mid-market means that fund managers proactively contact us when investors want to sell their stakes
Proprietary deal introducers – we maintain strong ties with intermediaries and brokers globally
Direct sellers – we have established relationships with family offices and small and mid-sized institutions, and systematically contact investors likely to rebalance their private equity exposure.
