Positioned to identify and support attractive investment managers globally, AlpInvest professionals are located in New York, Amsterdam, and Hong Kong.

The firm is often solicited to serve as advisors to general partners—both formally and informally.
The Fund Investments team leverages AlpInvest Partners’ firm-wide resources as a meaningful partner to identify trends and opportunities across the full private equity spectrum. With first-hand knowledge collected from the Co-Investments team along with the market visibility of the Secondary Investments team, AlpInvest Partners Fund Investments team is positioned to quickly and efficiently identify trends,
Solutions for Private Equity Investors: As allocations to private equity have grown, investors have sought new ways to manage their exposure to this historically illiquid asset class. AlpInvest Partners’ dedicated Secondary Investments team is highly experienced in this market, acquiring or restructuring portfolios of private equity assets ranging in size from €5 million to more than €1 billion.
The Co-Investment team seeks to achieve attractive private equity returns through a well-diversified portfolio of co-investments. The team works to maximize the number of pipeline investment opportunities and select the most attractive investments with qualified sponsors. The Co-Investment team has the flexibility to either come in early in a deal process to help underwrite a transaction alongside a sponsor or to participate in a broader co-investment syndication process, and the ability to focus on a broad range of deal types and industries to build a well-diversified portfolio.
We believe that AlpInvest’s strategy is different from the strategy of other Co-Investment managers in several ways:
- Dedicated Approach: AlpInvest has one of the largest dedicated and most experienced teams in the Co-Investment market, consisting of 24 individuals with a collective experience of more than 100 years in private equity.
- Active and Reliable Underwriting Partner: AlpInvest’s expertise in playing an active role early on alongside sponsors in a deal process is a key differentiator in securing proprietary deal flow and allocations.
- Leverage the Scale of AlpInvest’s Funds and Co-Investment Program: AlpInvest is one of the largest and most experienced institutional investors in the global private equity market. The firm’s substantial primary fund investment activities, including the ability to commit significant amounts to a single fund as a limited partner, is of considerable strategic value to sponsors, and can be a significant factor when sourcing Co-Investments. Over the past decade, AlpInvest has formed strong relationships with major private equity sponsors through the firm’s co-investment activities, primary investments, and secondary investments, further enhancing our selection capabilities.
- Structured sponsor and Deal Analysis: AlpInvest takes a two tiered approach to the selection and diligence of co-investment opportunities, focusing on both (i) the assessment of the sponsor’s ability to effectively execute and add value and (ii) on the quality of a transaction. The AlpInvest Funds team performs substantial diligence on each sponsor enabling AlpInvest to better assess if a sponsor is positioned to implement the value creation thesis. AlpInvest utilizes a proprietary framework to analyze the strengths of sponsors across multiple dimensions such as geography, industry, deal type and complexity of the value creation thesis. This, coupled with a granular analysis of the opportunity based on extensive due diligence led by our specialized and dedicated AlpInvest Co-Investment team, has led to better informed investment decisions. We believe this detailed approach differentiates AlpInvest in the market.
