Strategic Partners Fund Solutions is a leading global investor in the secondary private equity market. Our goal is to provide individual and institutional investors the opportunity to monetize and manage their illiquid investment holdings. We have executed many types of transactions, from single fund transfers to complex, structured portfolio solutions, and work hard to understand the unique circumstances of each of our partners and offer thoughtful alternatives. Investors value our guidance and support as it relates to private fund commitments, co-investments and portfolio management.

Strategic Partners has over 50 dedicated secondary investment professionals located in New York, London and San Francisco, and leverages Blackstone’s global presence. Our core group of senior professionals has worked together for over a decade. The secondary investment team is supported by an experienced accounting and operations team, enabling the successful execution, monitoring and reporting of our investment holdings. We believe our long-standing platform translates into a distinct understanding of the dynamic secondary market.



To sellers and general partners, Strategic Partners is viewed as a trustworthy and well-respected counterparty. From our start in 2000, we have raised $43 billion of capital commitments, completed over 1,200 transactions, and acquired over 3,500 limited partnership interests. We pride ourselves in providing solutions on a fair, timely and confidential basis. We are one of the most active secondary investors in the world, completing a transaction on average every 4 calendar days.

Secondary Investing

For our limited partners, we strive to provide the benefits of secondary investing, which may include (i) reducing blind pool risk; (ii) mitigating the “J-Curve” with shorter duration profiles; and (iii) diversifying exposure across industries, investment strategies, fund sponsors, geographies and vintage years. This is achieved by utilizing our deep network of global relationships and focusing on a detailed, bottom-up analysis of the underlying assets. We believe our market position and proprietary investment database reinforce our reputation as a nimble and knowledgeable investor.

1400+ Transactions
We have amassed an exceptional transaction completion record, built one day at a time on a fair, timely and confidential basis.
3,750+ Interests
Our portfolio of fund interests represent thousands of underlying portfolio companies, providing a unique footprint and edge in the marketplace.
Capital Commitments Raised
We provide liquidity to investors who have invested in private investments and need for some reason to sell those investments and make their cash work for them someplace else. We really do two things. On the transaction level, we help these investors monetize, and on a broader scope, we provide liquidity to an illiquid market.
