The management of our business and affairs is carried out by the Investment Committee. The Investment Committee is responsible for the development, selection, and ongoing monitoring and realization of investments. The Investment Committee is uniquely composed of individuals with diverse backgrounds; these backgrounds range from portfolio and fund of funds management to leadership as general partners of large-cap buyout funds, mid-cap buyout funds and venture capital funds, and as chief executive officers of private equity-backed portfolio companies. The insights of such a diverse group add substantial value to our diligence process. The Investment Committee is supported by an investment team of senior vice presidents, vice presidents, associates and analysts who execute our rigorous due diligence process.
