Private equity

Our expertise

As a leading global investor in private equity since 1997, we provide you with an opportunity to invest via closed-end fund-of-fund strategies, individually customized mandates as well as bespoke solutions that invest in primaries, secondaries and co-investments. More recently, the business has expanded into a dedicated open-end solution, all geared towards meeting the needs of institutional investors such as pension funds, insurances, sovereigns and family offices.

Our approach

Track record

Our track-record is based on our expertise in sourcing some of the compelling investment opportunities for clients in the fund-of-funds market whilst leveraging on the significant resources of the broader UBS business.

One-stop-shop

We cover all regions, stages and investment styles in the private equity universe, with investment results. We have solid expertise in venture, life science and tech investing as well as discovering new themes that continue to drive returns forward.

Globally diversified

Through operating in core markets across Europe, the US and APAC, we closely support our clients during the build-up and maintenance of their private equity allocation, offering broad diversification benefits and the ability to generate growth.

ESG aspects

We integrate ESG aspects throughout the entire investment lifecycle from sourcing, to the ongoing monitoring and reporting on investments.

The private equity industry has reassessed the importance of ESG to their businesses: developing an overarching framework that informs their strategic thinking.
