RCP Advisors Raises $300 Million For Seventh Private Equity Fund Of Funds

Oct 3 2011 | 8:54am ET

Private equity fund of funds specialist RCP Advisors on Friday announced the closing of its seventh fund-of-funds with $300 million in committed capital.

“We are gratified by the confidence that our partners have shown in us, particularly during such a tough fundraising market,” says Charles Huebner, managing principal and chief investment officer at RCP Advisors. “The investment merits of smaller buyout investments continue to resonate with investors. If anything, the financial crisis has highlighted the relative benefits of investing in this sector and our methods of selecting the strongest managers.” 

RCP generally works with buyout fund managers with funds of between $100 million and $1 billion in committed capital. These fund managers then seek to invest in lower middle sized companies—typically, with $25 million to $250 million in enterprise value. All of RCP's investment activities are focused exclusively on North American lower middle market buyouts.

RCP currently manages over $2 billion in committed capital in over 100 private equity investments across the firm’s funds-of-funds as well as its secondary fund and co-investment fund.

RCP Advisors was founded in 2001 and is headquartered in Chicago.
