Company Description

Kensington Capital Partners focuses on investments in private equity funds and secondary funds. The firm also makes co-investments in privately-held companies. They manage a variety of private equity funds that invest in an array of privately-held investments, across industry sectors, investment styles, company sizes and geographic regions. Kensington Capital Partners makes larger core investments as the foundation of their portfolio and makes smaller complementary investments that are selected to fill gaps and maintain portfolio balance. Core investments are selected for their potential for a high level of performance and for additional investment opportunities they may provide. Complementary investments consist of smaller commitments to certain funds to complete geographic or sector allocations for portfolio balance. Outside of Canada, Kensington Capital Partners uses a fund-of-funds as their core investment in regions where that investment can improve their portfolio's risk-adjusted returns and provide strong complementary investment opportunities. The firm also makes complementary investments in select primary direct funds alongside their core fund-of-funds holding.
