HIGHLIGHTS STRONG SUPPORT FOR ITS DIFFERENTIATED APPROACH TO PRIVATE EQUITY INVESTING
Altas Partners LP, a North American private equity firm, announced today that it has completed a US$1 billion fundraise for Altas Partners Holdings LP. The fund closed at its hard cap and was oversubscribed.
Altas was established in 2012 to pursue a differentiated approach to private equity investing. The firm seeks to invest in only one or two businesses each year, and has a longer-term outlook than many private equity firms. The firm’s partners believe that this orientation allows Altas to make strategic and capital decisions that support attractive growth in value over time, and that its flexible time horizon, with the ability to own each business for more than ten years, provides a meaningful benefit to its investors and is greatly valued by the CEOs and executives that lead Altas’ operating companies. Altas and its partners have made three acquisitions since the firm’s establishment: NSC Minerals, St. George’s University, and Capital Vision Services.
“We are very grateful for the support we have received from the outset of the fundraising process,” said Andrew Sheiner, who founded Altas following a 17-year career with Onex Corporation. “This capital will allow us to continue the process of building our portfolio carefully in the coming years, working with exceptional management teams and on behalf of like-minded investors.”
