Making The Case for Diverse and Emerging Managers: A Conversation with Peter Braffman, Managing Director, Real Estate Investments, GCM Grosvenor
GCM Grosvenor truly has a long history of sourcing, investing with and scaling emerging and diverse managers platforms. Over the years, the firm has built a practice focused on investing in and developing emerging and diverse managers and currently counts several of the nation’s largest pension systems including Teacher Retirement of Texas and others as its investors. Join us for a special interview with Peter Braffman, Managing Director, Real Estate Investments at GCM Grosvenor, whose team has mapped the emerging and diverse market for over a decade by tracking and collecting qualitative and quantitative data on the manager universe, as he shares his findings and makes a compelling case for investing with diverse and emerging managers.
We explore two segments of the market in which we believe there is a particular opportunity to “have your cake and eat it too” by both buying at an attractive entry price as well as partnering with the right sponsor to drive value creation. These two segments are family-owned businesses and public-to-private transactions.
We discuss how GP-led secondaries differ from traditional LP-led deals, and why we believe they present a compelling opportunity in the infrastructure space.
