New York and Santiago- February 23, 2016
Lexington Partners (“Lexington”), a leading global alternative investment manager, today announced it has opened an office in Santiago, Chile. The new office will serve as Lexington’s regional hub and enhance the firm’s strong investor and sponsor relationships in Latin America.
The office is led by Jose Sosa del Valle, a Principal who has spearheaded Lexington’s Latin American activities for the past seven years. Lexington Partners will continue to be supported in an advisory capacity by Brian D. O’Neill, who was appointed by the firm in 2010 as a Senior Advisor focusing on the Latin American region.
Lexington Partners is the world’s largest independent manager of secondary acquisition and co-investment funds. Lexington’s leadership position over the past 25 years has attracted commitments from major public pensions, corporate pensions, sovereign wealth funds, financial institutions, endowments, foundations, and family offices in over 30 countries, including significant commitments from investors based in Latin America.
In April 2015, Lexington announced the final closing of Lexington Capital Partners VIII, which, at over $10 billion, is the largest dedicated secondary acquisition fund ever raised. The Santiago office is Lexington’s sixth office globally and complements Lexington’s strong presence in the U.S., Europe, and Asia.
