FlowStone Opportunity Fund Returns +2.82% in 2Q

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, August 30, 2023 – FlowStone Partners announced today that FlowStone Opportunity Fund increased in Net Asset Value (“NAV”) by 2.82% in the first quarter ended June 30, 2023, while the S&P 500 was 8.74% 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 $662.8 million as of July 1, 2023.


“The Fund has produced consistent NAV growth by leveraging the benefits of private equity secondaries within a registered fund structure. Over the past several quarters our shareholders have benefited from fair market value growth of existing fund interests and the acquisition of new fund interests through secondary transactions that are often acquired at discounts to their existing carrying value,” said Scott Conners, Managing Director, and President of FlowStone Partners.


“The recent advances in public equity markets have provided temporary relief to some expectant sellers even as capital calls continue to outpace distributions from underlying sponsors. We would expect an increase in activity if public markets experience increased volatility in the 2H of the year. Despite the recent performance gains in equity markets, the macro environment remains uncertain and liquidity conditions remain tight. We think this backdrop could create attractive opportunities for secondary investors at the smaller end of the transaction market where sellers have less options,” added Conners.


As of June 30, 2023, the FlowStone Opportunity Fund has returned 92.84% since its August 2019 inception, including 5.61% over the past 1-year ended June 30, 2023. According to recent SEC filings, the Fund is approximately 94.4% committed/invested with exposure to 202 private equity sponsors and over 1500+ companies across various industries.
