RCPDirect IV Closes
RCPDirect IV Exceeds Target Fund Size, Closing $645.4M in Aggregate Capital Commitments
July 7, 2022 – RCP Advisors, a sponsor of private equity funds-of-funds, secondary funds, and co-investment funds focused on North American lower middle market buyouts, announced the final closing of RCPDirect IV (the “Fund”). The Fund was oversubscribed, with approximately $645.4 million in aggregate commitments, exceeding its target of $500 million. The Fund has a broad LP base of both new and existing investors, including endowments, foundations, public pension plans, family offices, and high-net-worth individuals.
“We are grateful for the support from our global limited partner base. The recent closes of our fund-of-funds and secondary fund, as well as our continued deployment of our fourth direct co-investment fund, allows RCP Advisors to remain a comprehensive partner to both GPs and LPs within the lower middle market buyout space,” said Jon Soffer, Principal and Co-Portfolio Manager at RCP Advisors.
“The continued support despite the challenging macro conditions highlights our LPs’ faith in the lower middle market and our ability to find tremendous GPs to partner with who can identify and execute on initiatives that improve their portfolio companies regardless of market conditions. We are fortunate to be able to leverage our network and twenty-year history to work with such great partners,” said Dave McCoy, Managing Partner and Co-Portfolio Manager at RCP Advisors.
RCPDirect IV represents a continuation of the same investment strategy employed by RCP’s previous co-investment funds. The Fund will generally partner with lead buyout fund managers who raise funds between $100 million and $1 billion in committed capital and will make minority equity investments between $5 million and $30 million in lower middle market companies – typically, with $25 million to $500 million in enterprise value.
