The fund secured commitments from public and private pension funds, insurance firms and foundations in North America and Europe.

The investment vehicle is a global direct co-investment fund with an opportunistic investment strategy.

It seeks to invest the best available buyout investments and build a diversified portfolio by geography, strategy and industry sector.

"Today’s challenging market environment requires a more nuanced and thoughtful approach," says Russell Steenberg, global head of BlackRock Private Equity Partners.

The fund will back strong management teams in all-weather businesses that can benefit from corporate change event but require support in transition, integration and operations to realize its full potential.
