Conversus believes individual investors should have more transparent, convenient and efficient access to private markets. Whether investing for retirement, education, or financial stability, investors can benefit from the diversification and returns of private market assets. The mission of Conversus, whose name is derived from the Latin verb for conversion, is to convert the institutional advantage into individual opportunity. We seek to expand access to the private markets for individual investors and thereby transform their portfolios to enhance long-term outcomes.
Conversus is a wholly-owned business of StepStone Group and leverages StepStone’s deep expertise across the private markets to build innovative investment solutions using an investor-centric approach.
The principals who lead Conversus have a proven record of bringing private markets solutions to high net worth investors. Through their careers, they have developed deep expertise in all private market asset classes with broad proficiencies in manager selection, product structuring, distribution, governance, and operations.
The Conversus team believes strongly in developing investor-centric products that prioritize transparency, efficiency, and the investor experience.
As investors and advisors continue to move toward passive products for their public market exposure, they are increasingly seeking alpha from private market investments. Institutional investors have long turned to the private markets for their alpha generating potential, diversification benefits, ability to capitalize on market inefficiencies and other structural advantages relative to traditional public markets.
Conversus believes individual investors should have efficient, transparent and convenient access to the private markets by employing the same tools as the most sophisticated institutions. We believe our products can help individual investors achieve their retirement, education, or financial stability goals through innovative solutions. Our mission is to transform investor portfolios by providing expanded access to the private markets.
Together, Conversus and StepStone prudently integrate fund investments, secondaries, and co-investments across private equity, real estate, infrastructure, and private debt to create solutions designed for high net worth investors.
By leveraging StepStone’s research-focused investment process and sophisticated analytical techniques, Conversus can develop and launch private market products that convert these institutional advantages into investment opportunities for individual investors.
