Scala Fund Advisory advised Hamilton Lane on an oversubscribed U.S. and European large buyout mandate

Scala Fund Advisory advised Hamilton Lane on raising more than $215 million for the third annual U.S. and European large buyout mandate. The mandate will be managed by Hamilton Lane, a leading global private markets asset management firm, and will enable mid-sized institutions in Finland and surrounding areas to gain access to some of the most sought after and often oversubscribed buyout funds through a tailor-made solution. The group of 27 investors consists of pension funds, foundations, trade unions and family offices. The mandate is a continuation to the two similar large buyout mandates on which Scala Fund Advisory advised Hamilton Lane in 2017 and 2018.

The demand for leading U.S. and European large buyout funds has remained very strong. These types of funds have historically exhibited stable long-term returns and they typically form the nucleus of the alternative investment portfolio for several large pension companies and other leading global investors. Accessing these funds can be challenging to some investors due to typical minimum ticket sizes. In addition, these funds are often oversubscribed, making it increasingly difficult for potential new investors to gain access. As one of the world’s largest private markets investors, Hamilton Lane commits capital to various types of private market funds.

“We are very pleased with our collaboration with Hamilton Lane that has been able to secure access to industry-leading buyout managers for the LPs of the two first large buyout programs. We look forward to advising Hamilton Lane on building similar programs in the future, as well as continuing to build on the investor base, which has more than doubled in size since the last mandate,” comments Jerome Bouix, Managing Partner of Scala Fund Advisory.

“With the establishment of our third mandate we are proud to serve a dynamic group of 27 LPs. We are thankful for Scala Fund Advisory for their unique and deep market knowledge and professionalism. As an experienced private markets partner and together with Scala, Hamilton Lane is committed to continuing to provide investors with access to highly selective managers through this annual series of mandates,” said Richard Hope, Managing Director at Hamilton Lane.
