Company Description

StepStone Group builds private equity portfolios through a combination of fund investments, co-investments and secondary purchases. When designing private equity programs and optimizing portfolio exposure, the firm employs a proprietary, institutional investment approach that seeks to maximize risk-adjusted returns. Their approach includes program design, portfolio construction, portfolio analytics and monitoring and reporting.StepStone's investment approach focuses on utilizing proprietary research to identify strategies and geographies that will outperform in the future and on selecting the top-performing fund managers, co-investment and secondary opportunities in these areas. The firm utilizes proprietary research to identify the segments of the private equity market they believe will outperform over the next fund cycle (4 to 6 years). StepStone then uses this research to over allocate and/or under allocate assets to specific strategies and geographies within an overall framework of a diversified portfolio. They refer to this process as 'Targeted Diversification.' StepStone seeks to avoid index-based returns and the costs of over diversification. This allocation strategy provides the framework for the firm's selection of specific fund investments, secondary purchases and co-investments.
