Investment strategy

Targeting private equity returns with lower volatility

  • Asset selection. Seek best-in-class companies, outstanding management teams.
  • Value creation. Active ownership that leverages LTPC and BlackRock resources.
  • Prudent leverage. Aim to mitigate volatility and preserve optionality.
  • Duration. Long hold periods that mitigate friction; evergreen structure facilitates compounded returns.
  • Economic efficiency. Highly efficient cost structure and incentive compensation designed with limited partners in mind.

Because of the long-term nature of its investments, the LTPC strategy places an emphasis on Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) factors as part of its due diligence and value creation.

The LTPC strategy is designed to deliver a better, more aligned and cost-efficient model for private equity investing in best-in-class companies.

Market opportunity

Positioned at the intersection of converging industry trends

LTPC is positioned at the center of investors’ need for greater alignment, shrinking public listings, long-term capital needs of companies and lack of evolution in traditional private equity.

  • Equity markets have seen a dramatic secular shift away from public ownership, with the number of public companies in the U.S. decreasing by almost 50% since 1997, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau.
  • Private markets have concurrently expanded, but the private equity model has not evolved, retaining its high-fee, exit-oriented structure and short-term investment horizon.
  • A large and growing population of strong, stable companies seeks truly long-term partners to facilitate value creation over time.
  • Investors need an investment structure better aligned with their long-term goals.
