The Problem

Less than 0.5% of private equity firms are diverse-owned. While firms have made progress adding minorities at the staff and junior level, there is a clear gap in the lack of ownership and control by women and minorities of private equity management companies.

  • Lack of diversity & inclusion
  • Too few emerging managers
  • Lack of innovation

The Solution

Close the Gap

Larger private equity funds have historically been less able to maintain good performance than its smaller counterparts.

Let's close the equity gap through the creation of new investment partnerships, with the combined strength of successful university endowments. We believe this opportunity will create te parthway to increase private equity ownership and control by women and minorities.

Together, through Equity25, we offer compelling DEI investment opportunities with established and leading performers in private equity management.
