Kensington Global Private Equity Fund
The Kensington Global Private Equity Fund is a mutual fund trust created to provide Canadian individuals and other Canadian investors with access to a diversified portfolio of global private equity investments, including private equity funds and direct investments in private companies. The Kensington Global Private Equity Fund was formed in 2007 and remains open for new Canadian accredited investors.
The Kensington Global Private Equity Fund has performed well as the portfolio has grown and initial investments have reached maturity. As investments are sold and portfolio gains are realized, Kensington intends to distribute profits to Unitholders and re-invest capital into new investments.
The Kensington Global Private Equity Fund is open to new investors who qualify as Canadian "accredited investors" under applicable Canadian securities laws.
