Halocline Private Holdings is global private investment office focusing on the secondary private equity market – or 'secondaries' as its usually known.
Halocline are an ideal replacement capital source for private equity, real estate, and infrastructure investors looking for both portfolio management and liquidity driven solutions for professional investors wishing to exit early from their Limited Partner positions in private equity funds or portfolios of direct investments in private companies (typically owned by financial institutions or corporations). Unlike typical private equity secondaries firms, Halocline only focuses on secondary market and applies a deal driven or what we call “special situation” driven investment approach on all opportunities we consider. Funding is deal driven working alongside one or more proprietary Limited Partners. This is a model which is not only unique, more importantly it focuses our efforts on working very closely with our proprietary Limited Partners in order to secure and structure the ideal Limited Partner exit solution. It also makes us an ideal long-term replacement capital source with our funding partners when entering into a relationship with a new or existing General Partner. We pride our approach on non-competitive transactions diligently originated by our proprietary relationships with Limited Partners and General Partners globally. It is precisely this unique approach that has allowed us to work very closely with limited partners and general partners as we focus on trust, discretion, flexibility, and efficiency when providing solutions. Halocline maintains a low market profile amongst its peers when working with sellers of private fund interests or portfolios of direct assets in North and South America, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Australia.
Halocline’s typical investments can vary widely in size greatly where we work with proprietary funding partners to acquire single LP positions in small private equity funds or large portfolios of diverse fund interests or secondary direct assets. Our average investment size is from as small as US $1 million, to US $1 billion or more if necessary working typically with one to two of our proprietary LPs as a consortium.
Since 2005 Halocline has participated both as advisor historically as well as principal acquirer working with our proprietary Limited Partners in the execution of over US $150bn of private equity, real estate, and infrastructure deals representing over 40 transactions representing over 230 secondary LP stakes, and nearly 80 secondary direct transactions, as well as one-off co‑investments executed representing a total deal volume of over US $150bn.
