AUM as of December 31, 2023.

We define diverse managers as firms in which women or minority professionals account for at least 25% of firm economics.

* Employee data as of January 1, 2024.

The data regarding sustainable and impact investments (and sub-strategies) presented above and otherwise contained herein, is based on the amount committed to and invested in investments by GCM Grosvenor-managed portfolios as of the dates above, based on the assessment of each such investment by GCM Grosvenor investment team members. The relevant investments are placed into categories that are generally consistent with the categories presented in the UN PRI Impact Investing Market Map. Primary fund assessments are based on whether a significant part of the expected strategy of the primary fund falls into a sustainable or impact category. Co-investment categorizations are based either on categories represented by the co-investment sponsor or the underlying portfolio company. Diverse Manager investments include investments managed by or sponsored by a diverse manager, based on GCM Grosvenor’s definition of a diverse manager, which is determined by thresholds of manager economic ownership by diverse parties (race, gender, sexual orientation, veterans, disabled persons). There is significant subjectivity in placing an investment in a particular category, and conventions and methodologies used by GCM Grosvenor in categorizing investments and calculating the data presented may differ from those used by other investment managers. Additional information regarding these conventions and methodologies is available upon request.
