      8 Buyout LP Interests

    The seller was looking to reduce their number of GP relationships as part of a shift in strategy to focus on core relationships with greater access to direct investments and co-investments. The portfolio comprised of top quality buyout managers, principally in North America and Western Europe. Ardian was able to pre-empt the auction process and had a specific angle with the buyer, having already transacted on a $940m portfolio of 12 Buyout LP interests with the seller two years previously.
