FlowStone Opportunity Fund Returns -0.18% in Q1

FlowStone Partners seeks to provide immediate and continuous exposure to private equity opportunities through a flexible investment structure that is offered on a quarterly basis to HNW and institutional investors.

CHICAGO, June 9, 2022FlowStone Partners announced today that FlowStone Opportunity Fund decreased in Net Asset Value (“NAV”) by 0.18% in the first quarter ended March 31, 2022 while the Russell 2000 declined 7.53% over the same period amid a broader market sell-off. The 1940 & 1933 Act registered investment vehicle was launched in August 2019 to provide qualified high-net-worth and institutional investors diversified exposure to private equity through an actively managed secondary-focused strategy. The change in NAV and net inflows from shareholders increased overall assets in the Fund to over $450 million as of April 1, 2022. “Liquid markets have been volatile across nearly all major asset classes and our strategy was not immune to systemic macro factors in Q1, albeit to a lesser degree. We view private equity as a long-term asset class and short-term disruptions can create investment opportunities at entry points that reflect current market conditions. Our team has 70+ years of combined experience across various business cycles and this experience helps to inform our views on the current environment.” said Scott Conners, Managing Director, and President of FlowStone Partners. The Fund remains open to accept quarterly Shareholder subscriptions from Qualified Clients and Qualified Purchasers. “Based on our experience, market disruptions have historically presented attractive transaction opportunities in the private equity secondary markets. We look forward to helping investors navigate current market conditions by providing diversified exposure to private equity assets that may be less impacted by the broader market volatility,” added Conners.

 

As of March 31, 2022, the FlowStone Opportunity Fund has returned 76.49%, including 20.53% over the past 12-months, since its August 2019 inception. According to recent SEC filings, the Fund is approximately 66.10% committed/invested with exposure to over 170 private equity sponsors and over 1000+ companies across various industries.
