Institutional backers, including pension systems such as the Minnesota State Board of Investment, the Kentucky Teachers’ Retirement System, and the New York City Employees’ Retirement System, participated in the fundraising effort.

Lexington Capital Partners X, the fund that raised the $22.7 billion, attracted considerable interest from investors, with commitments ranging from $100 million to more than $100 million. The success of this fundraising effort highlights the continued appeal of secondhand private-equity stakes for institutional investors seeking exposure to the private markets.

The strong interest from institutional backers in this fundraising effort demonstrates their confidence in Lexington Partners’ ability to identify and profit from attractive investment opportunities in the secondhand private-equity market. With more than 25 years of experience in this space, Lexington Partners has established a strong track record and reputation for delivering favorable returns to its investors.

Overall, the success of Lexington Partners’ fundraising effort underscores the ongoing demand for secondhand private-equity stakes as an investment strategy.

With a significant amount of capital now available for investment, Lexington Partners is well-positioned to take advantage of attractive opportunities and generate strong returns for its investors.
