The new fund received commitments from both existing and new investors including public and private pension funds, insurance companies and other institutional investors.
“We are extremely pleased with the strong reception BPCP V received from both new and returning limited partners. We believe this level of investor support is a direct result of the strong and consistent performance of the Balance Point team since 2007,” said Seth Alvord, managing partner of Balance Point. “BPCP V provides us with the capital necessary to continue executing upon our strategy of being the partner of choice for companies and private equity investors seeking customized financing solutions to provide both operational flexibility and to support strategic growth.”
