Differentiated strategy in GP-led secondaries

An ability to lead complex transactions in lower mid-market buyout and growth globally

Should you put secondaries first?

The rapidly growing GP-led market has become a valuable part of an investor’s private equity toolkit. We focus on the lower end of the market, where we are better able to target quality companies, with strong sustainability profiles. 

Schroders Capital is a lower middle market GP-led specialist. We are highly effective at originating access-restricted GP-leds and LP secondaries from our core sponsor network.

Strong, global network. Exclusive deal flow.

We’ve spent years building strong partnerships across the globe, with over 400 existing GPs in our network. That gives us access to high-quality secondary deal flow that’s less accessible to other investors. The result is prime opportunities for investment across multiple sectors, including healthcare, technology and business services.
