geometric design Overview

RCP partners with best-in-breed private equity sponsors to selectively co-invest in high quality portfolio companies.

Private equity co-investments provide investors the opportunity to invest in individual deals alongside managers, providing transparency, enhanced selection, a more efficient fee structure, the opportunity for quicker deployment, and the potential for higher returns. 

When investing through our dedicated RCPDirect co-investment funds, investors also benefit from diversification and risk management.1

The RCP Advantage

As an established and respected co-investor in the small buyout market, RCP’s close relationships with general partners (often stemming from our position as a major limited partner) result in a strong and differentiated deal flow. Our tenured team, rigorous due diligence process, and extensive database provide the foundation to vet our deal flow and deliver attractive results for our investors.


We utilize a detailed and highly disciplined selection process, leveraging our experience and proprietary data to evaluate companies along consistent criteria. As a leading investor in small buyout funds, RCP has unique advantages to underwrite the quality of both the underlying investment and the lead sponsor.


As a trusted limited partner and thought leader in the small buyout market, RCP has extensive relationships from which to source co-investment opportunities. RCP sources from a wide range of lead investors, including funds in which RCP is an investor, other small buyout funds, and high-quality independent sponsors. 

Who we invest with

We co-invest with institutional sponsors with fund sizes of $100 million to $1 billion and experienced independent small buyout sponsors. 

We target investments in companies with enterprise values typically between $25 million and $500 million.2
