Managed Accounts Solutions
Caledon tailors solutions to meet the specific needs of its clients, recognizing that a standard “one-size-fits-all” approach provided by traditional solutions is not appropriate for all investors.
This approach includes the design and implementation of new programs (e.g. strategy, guidelines, benchmarks), as well as transaction sourcing, evaluation, execution and monitoring and reporting. Caledon manages a number of customized relationships that combine funds and co-investments in a manner specifically suited to the client.
To do so, we are empowered as a fiduciary to create comprehensive investment programs for the client’s infrastructure or private equity allocation. Alternatively, we can create narrow strategies that can include specific sector build-outs such as distressed private equity or value-add infrastructure.
