Fairly new group (maybe 3-5 years old?) with much of senior management coming out of PCG (a very large PE FoF that faced some turnover). In a short matter of time, they have won significant PE advisory mandates with a lot of large LP investors (e.g., endowments, pension funds) such as Los Angeles Fire and Police Pension System, Kuwait Investment Authority and George Kaiser Foundation. They also fairly recently opened up a New York and Beijing office.

Very well respected by GPs, and have very strong access.

It's not exactly a traditional PE FoF per se. They build a custom PE portfolio for each of their clients based on their needs, from my understanding. The work as an analyst/associate I imagine is more technical/analytical in nature compared to some of the PE FoF analysts/associates' work at other shops. They also place a strong emphasis on research and portfolio analytics.

I'm an active senior associate at StepStone in San Diego. Happy to answer any questions you/anyone else has about the firm. StepStone is a global private markets advisor and asset manager with $14B AUM and $60B+ AUA (as of 2016). Think of StepStone as the intermediary between large pools of institutional capital and various direct investment strategies such as PE, VC, hedge, credit, real assets, infra, etc. Mix of fund diligence (primary), secondary diligence (LP and asset level), and co-investment diligence (alongside lead sponsors).

Hi Hugh,

Thanks for your input - what would you say are the future opportunities after working with the firm? Are there exits to GPs?
