RCP Fund XVIII Closes on ~$285 Million in Aggregate Capital Commitments

RCP Advisors, a private equity investment firm that provides access to North American small buyout fund managers through primary funds, secondary funds, and co-investment funds, announced the final closing of RCP Fund XVIII (“Fund XVIII” or the “Fund”). The Fund closed on approximately $285 million in aggregate commitments. The Fund has a broad LP base of new and existing investors, including family offices, high-net-worth individuals, foundations, public pension plans, and endowments.

“We want to express our sincere gratitude to our limited partners for their continued faith and confidence in our team and strategy. Small company buyouts continue to provide compelling investment opportunities that we believe are differentiated from and superior to other sectors within the private equity market. We will continue to leverage our industry-leading research, data, and analytics in seeking to realize our goal of generating top-quartile performance for our investors.”

Tom Danis, Managing Partner at RCP Advisors

Fund XVIII will adhere to the same investment strategy that RCP’s predecessor primary funds employ. The Fund will generally target investments with buyout fund managers primarily focusing on less than $1 billion in committed capital. These managers will, in turn, generally seek to make control-oriented investments in established, small to mid-sized companies with approximately $3 million to $25 million in EBITDA.

*“Committed capital” primarily reflects the capital commitments associated with our SMAs, focused commingled funds, and advisory accounts advised by RCP since the firm’s inception in 2001 (including funds that have since been sold, dissolved, or wound down). We include capital commitments in our calculation of committed capital if (a) we have full discretion over the investment decisions in an account or have responsibility or custody of assets or (b) we do not have full discretion to make investment decisions but play a role in advising the client on asset allocation, performing investment manager due diligence and recommending investments for the client’s portfolio and/or monitoring and reporting on their investments. For our discretionary SMAs and commingled funds, as well as for our non-discretionary advisory accounts for which RCP is responsible for advising on all investments within the client’s portfolio, committed capital is calculated based on aggregate capital commitments to such accounts. For non-discretionary accounts where RCP is responsible for advising only a portion of the client portfolio investments, committed capital is calculated as capital commitments by the client to those underlying investments which were made based on RCP’s recommendation or with respect to which RCP advises the client. Committed capital does not include (i) non-discretionary advisory accounts no longer under advisement by RCP, (ii) assets managed or advised by the Private Capital Unit or HB Units of RCP 2, (iii) capital commitments to funds managed or sponsored by RCP’s affiliated (but independently operated) management companies, and (iv) RCP’s ancillary products or services.
