Strategic Minority Investors
Clipway is also pleased to announce that it has secured strategic, minority investments from leading global investor General Atlantic and leading European independent asset manager Carmignac. These financial investments will help support Clipway’s growth plans.
Maxime Carmignac, CEO of Carmignac UK, declared: “Private equity is an asset class in which we see attractive long-term growth opportunities. The Clipway leadership team has participated in one of the most successful track records in secondaries globally – the best segment to deploy fresh money in the current private equity environment as it provides attractive entry points, superior visibility and diversification. We share the same entrepreneurial mindset and ambitions; and we are excited to be taking this new step on our private equity journey.”
“As the global secondaries market scales in both size and complexity, Clipway is leveraging digital innovation to optimise investment strategies and deliver value to investors,” said Gabriel Caillaux, Co-President, Managing Director, and Head of Climate and EMEA at General Atlantic. “Clipway’s seasoned leadership team has a strong track record of collaboration across the industry, and we look forward to supporting their vision to improve secondaries investing through technology.”
Ingmar Vallano, a Managing Partner and founding member of Clipway, added: “Clipway has been founded with the clear intention of transforming secondaries investing. As part of that, we want to be able to partner with some of the leading firms in the industry and believe that both General Atlantic and Carmignac, two established investors with strong entrepreneurial spirit, complement our existing expertise very well. We are excited to begin the Clipway journey alongside them.”
