Global Reach & Solutions
Credit Suisse has established a number of private equity strategies that capitalize on an integrated global platform designed to meet investor demand for increasingly more diverse and sophisticated investment solutions. The platform provides a single "center of excellence" that provides solutions and products for private equity investors through single manager funds and co-mingled fund of funds, as well as customized separate accounts and co-investment programs. The Credit Suisse platform allows its highly experienced investment professionals to leverage the firm's intellectual capital and best practices to help source, analyze, manage and monetize investments across multiple industries and geographies. In particular, the robust deal sourcing provided by the Credit Suisse platform provides its private equity funds with an important competitive advantage. Credit Suisse's strong market position has allowed it to establish 12 "boutique" businesses with more than 180 highly experienced investment professionals to drive returns in an asset class where manager selection is critical to generating strong performance for investors.
Credit Suisse and its employees (including its private equity investment teams) have invested significant capital across its private equity platform, thereby aligning the interests of the firm and its employees with those of its third party investors. In addition, investment decision making resides solely within each private equity strategy / boutique, with compensation of investment professionals tied solely to the performance of their particular business.
Credit Suisse has a long history of principal investing that began at Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette ("DLJ") in 1969 with the formation of The Sprout Group, DLJ's venture capital affiliate, and currently has more than $33 billion of private equity managed assets. Credit Suisse's private equity clients include some of the world's most sophisticated investors, such as corporate and municipal pension funds, foundations, endowments and ultra high net worth individuals.
