Vantage’s investment objective is to achieve attractive medium-term returns on Private Equity investments while keeping the volatility of the overall investment low. This will be achieved by investing across a highly diversified portfolio of Private Equity assets with diversification obtained by allocating across managers, geographic region, financing stage, industry sector and Vintage year. Vantage only invests in small to mid market focussed funds investing in the later expansion and buyout financing stage of Private Equity.
Vantage systematically follows an underlying fund selection and investment process. For each fund, Vantage evaluates a considerable number of investment opportunities that ultimately result in Commitments and Investments into a limited number of funds and co-investments. Vantage’s fund of funds investment approach creates a portfolio of underlying investments that are spread across a range of industry sectors. This provides investors in Vantage’s funds with the benefits of a highly diversified portfolio of investments, a key factor in Vantage’s risk minimization strategy.
