We are one of the longest-established providers of strategic advice, global access and liquidity for private equity principals and their funds.
Christophe Galivel is the principal of a UK mid-market buyout firm based in London, which is in the process of raising a new fund.
The fund requires a committed revolving line of credit to make new investments ahead of calling capital from its limited partners, issue letters of credit and manage currency exposures.
Mr Galivel asks us to invest some of the substantial carried interest he received from his firm’s last fund in liquid assets with an enhanced yield.
Our Global Investment Lab analyses his overall risk exposure in light of his commitment to his own fund and creates a fully tailored, uncorrelated portfolio to help him diversify.
We introduce Mr Galivel to Citi’s Investment Banking unit in order to provide his fund with access to deal-sourcing ideas and expertise in disposals, mergers and acquisitions.
