Newbury Partners specializes in acquiring buyout, venture capital, special situations, mezzanine and fund-of-funds limited partnership interests in the secondary market.
With experience spanning more than 150 secondary transactions and nearly 20 years as secondary specialists, Newbury Partners works with sellers and funds to create liquidity solutions across the global private equity market.
While our team actively reviews secondary transaction opportunities ranging up to $250 million in value, we have no minimum deal size. Transaction size is not a limiting factor for us, small or large. We aim to provide investors with the greatest flexibility in considering strategic alternatives – everything from wholesale changes to minor sell-downs can be accomplished.
We consider transactions involving young or mature portfolios and purchase interests in both private equity funds and in privately-held companies. We also invest in fund vehicles that span the spectrum of private equity strategies, including leveraged buyouts, venture capital, special situations, mezzanine and fund-of-funds.
We believe that our international experience and capabilities are critical and distinguishing components of our business: we regularly work with sellers and review investments in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and Latin America. Our worldwide network of relationships also enables us to think globally but operate locally, effectively tailoring our expertise to individual geographic markets.
To supplement our secondary market activities, Newbury Partners also actively commits capital to co-investments. In pursuing these opportunities, we regularly bring to bear the collective experience and capital of our partners—a worldwide roster of sophisticated investors, influential networks of local market experts, and our extensive personal contacts throughout the industry. We believe these partners add significant clout and substantial experience to our co-investment capabilities.
