FlowStone Opportunity Fund Returns 2.47% 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 investors.

CHICAGO, May 31, 2024 – FlowStone Partners announced today that FlowStone Opportunity Fund increased in Net Asset Value (“NAV”) by 2.47% in the first quarter ended March 31, 2024, while the S&P 500 increased 10.56% over the same period. The 1940 & 1933 Act registered investment vehicle was launched in August 2019 to provide qualified 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 $748 million as of April 1, 2024.

“We appreciate the support of our investors that utilize FSOF to build core exposure to private equity. Our flexible investment structure and secondaries approach seeks to provides private equity-like returns through a diversified portfolio that often results in less return volatility, in both up and down markets, compared to board-based public equity indices which may be driven by a handful of positions. Our investment approach seeks to acquire and manage quality private equity assets, generally at discounts to our assessment of intrinsic value.” said Scott Conners, Managing Director, and President of FlowStone Partners. “This approach has helped FSOF to perform in different market environments since its August 2019 inception. We continue to benefit from a robust secondaries transaction market, particularly at the smaller end, where limited partners are more liquidly constrained.” added Conners.


As of March 31, 2024, the FlowStone Opportunity Fund has returned 97.93% since its August 2019 inception, including 5.54% over the past one-year ended March 31, 2024. According to recent SEC filings, the Fund is nearly 90% committed/invested with exposure to 200+ private equity funds and over 1950+ companies across various industries.
