Pathway is 100% partner owned and focused solely on investing in what it believes to be high-quality private market managers. As a private market specialist with no other lines of business, Pathway is devoted to the development of private market portfolios and strives to deliver exceptional returns and service to its investors. Pathway carefully manages its capacity and growth believing that there are a limited number of high-quality private market investment opportunities in the market.
Experienced and Stable Investment Team
Pathway’s Investment Committee, which comprises three senior managing directors and five managing directors, has private market experience that spans four decades, and collectively, the firm’s 16 investment partners have, on average, more than 20 years of private market experience. Further, Pathway believes that it is one of the most experienced and stable firms in the industry, its 16 investment partners having worked together for an average of more than 17 years. We believe that this stability is a result of the deliberate care and consideration the firm devotes to its team.
Access to Funds
Gaining access to high-quality private market managers has always been a key factor for success in private market investing. Pathway believes that access to high-quality managers can be gained only by establishing credibility and maintaining long-term relationships with these managers. There is no shortcut to this process. Pathway’s senior managing directors have been active in the private markets since 1984 and, along with other investment professionals of the firm, continue not only to nurture the relationships developed over this time but also to actively create new relationships. Additionally, Pathway manages capital on behalf of well-established and respected institutions that have made a long-term commitment to the asset class. Further, Pathway invests a significant amount of capital annually in private market funds. Pathway believes that this approach has resulted in a reputation for Pathway as being a discrete, sizable, reliable, and consistent investor in private market funds—qualities that are valued by top-tier private market managers.
Pathway’s investment strategy has been developed, refined, and tested over more than 25 years. This strategy, which combines Pathway’s highly selective investment criteria and thorough investment process, enables Pathway to identify what it believes to be high-quality opportunities.

Pathway has a strong long-term track record across a wide variety of private market strategies over various economic, interest rate, stock market, and industry cycles.
