Leveraging Schroders Capital’s strong relationships and industry network, we provide investors with access to complex secondaries opportunities in lower mid-market buyout, growth equity and venture strategies across US, Europe and Asia.
We focus on traditional and non-traditional opportunities where we have a close relationship and where the level of complexity requires a bespoke solution. Our approach leverages our broad range of primary investment relationships, which gives us a competitive advantage for many transactions.
Schroders Capital’s Secondaries strategy is part of what was formerly known as Schroder Adveq.
Our global primary investor relationships provide us with access to high-quality secondary deal flow that is often not accessible by other investors. Our team has a direct investment mindset, conducting rigorous due diligence and maintaining price discipline in acquiring assets at attractive entry points across a range of secondaries strategies:
We specialise in five core industry verticals, applying sector-specific frameworks in underwriting and assessing value creation for each given opportunity:
We are highly selective when choosing managers, working only with those where ESG is fully integrated into their investment process, and we monitor the underlying managers and companies according to a set of ESG criteria. We leverage the due diligence processes from our primary investments network and conduct asset-level due diligence for every one of our investments, analysing underlying business models to identify any issues early on.
With a team of over 400 employees working across 19 offices around the world, we deploy capital as a force for good, building positive change. We value diversity and see it as a source of creativity and a way to get to better investment decisions, along with creating an engaging work environment.
