Our Approach to Direct Secondaries

We appreciate that private equity investors may have liquidity objectives unrelated to a company’s success or growth opportunity.

GPs, corporations, financial institutions and individuals have many reasons for why it is appropriate to seek to generate liquidity or partial liquidity from their investment even in companies with outstanding future return potential.

Direct Secondaries

We invest in companies where we can offer liquidity to selected shareholders and then work with ongoing investors and management teams to execute long- term growth plans. By offering interim liquidity to shareholders, W Capital better aligns the longer-term shareholder base and empowers management to continue executing on its growth objectives.

Once shareholders, we actively support our portfolio companies by providing access to our broad network of relationships, board involvement and expansion capital to finance growth and acquisitions.

  • Minority recapitalization
  • Rollover equity
  • Primary/secondary offerings

  • Direct secondary share purchases
  • Partial sell-downs

GP Solutions

We partner with many of the world’s leading private equity firms to spearhead LP and co-investor liquidity transactions. Our transactions allow GPs to capture maximum future value potential in their highest conviction assets while providing liquidity to inclined LPs and co-investors.

Our GP solutions better align duration, equity reserves, fund terms and GP economics for portfolio managers while facilitating liquidity for selling stakeholders at fair value.
