• An experienced private equity fund of funds manager with a top quartile* track record delivered through a differentiated investment strategy.

  • The Private Equity business within BMO Global Asset Management, was established in June 2005 when the business was acquired from Martin Currie Investment Management. With $1bn assets under management, the Private Equity business is a highly experienced specialist private equity fund of funds manager with a proven ability to identify and access strong performing mid-market and emerging managers. Our team manages a number of fund of funds products at different stages of maturity and with different mandates but with certain common themes, such as a mid-market focus, primarily in buyout funds, a European bias, with the ability to pursue selective co-investments and secondary investments.

    Our investors benefit from our top quartile track record, specialist industry knowledge, market reach, fund access, disciplined investment approach and focus on long-term positive investor relations. In addition, our fund investors’ risks are reduced through the fund of funds structure we manage for them. Furthermore, our investors are relieved of the costly and time consuming exercise of directly monitoring investments and fulfilling reporting requirements which we perform on a transparent basis on their behalf. We cater to a variety of investor types from a number of different countries with specific investment needs, including government pension funds, institutional pension funds, insurance companies, family offices, private banks and individuals.

    As well as managing our investment funds we offer bespoke services related to private equity fund portfolios. This may take the form of the assessment, restructuring or management of existing private equity fund of funds portfolios or the implementation of customised fund of funds programmes based on specific client requirements, leveraging the experience and operations of our Private Equity team (‘the Team’).
