“We greatly appreciate the strong support of our existing and new limited partners and are very pleased by the investor interest that allowed for a close at our $425 million hard cap within six months of launch,” said Mr. Troiano. “Since our inception 14 years ago, Beekman has now raised over $825 million in total capital commitments while continuing to generate strong and consistent returns for our limited partners. We are excited to continue executing on our disciplined, core investment strategy and to continue partnering with exceptional limited partners and management teams.”

The Beekman Group makes control investments of $10 million to $75 million in companies that have revenues from $10 million to $200 million and enterprise values of $15 million to $200 million. Sectors of interest include consumer, healthcare, business and industrial services.
