Our Approach to Secondaries

Private equity investors have a growing range of solutions and structures to improve fund performance and liquidity.

W Capital understands and appreciates the liquidity goals and needs of private equity GPs, whether an investor’s objectives are extending hold periods of trophy assets, generating portfolio liquidity, realigning investor duration, securing growth capital mid-way through an investment period, forming a continuation fund, or providing limited partners more liquidity options.

GP-Led

We partner with many of the world’s leading private equity firms to spearhead GP-led transactions. Since W Capital began providing secondary liquidity to GPs more than two decades ago, GP-leds have become a high growth and broadly accepted strategy. GP-leds may allow GPs’ to generate liquidity for their funds and limited partners while keeping control of assets and extending hold periods.

GP Continuation Funds
Recapitalizing a GPs investor base for specific targeted assets

GP Structured Solutions
Structuring solutions directly with a GP to address liquidity and ownership objectives

 

Direct Secondaries

We invest in companies where we can offer liquidity to selected shareholders as a liquidity solution provider. We can work with the ongoing investors and management teams to support long term growth plans. By offering interim liquidity to investors, W Capital better aligns the shareholder base and enables management to continue executing on growth objectives.
