CVC started out as a subsidiary of Citigroup under the name Citicorp Venture Capital. In 1993 the management team purchased the division and spun out to form CVC Capital Partners, a global private equity and investment advisory firm with a network of offices across Europe, the Americas, and the Asia-Pacific regions. CVC's alternatives platform comprises seven strategies; Europe & the Americas, Asia, Growth Partners, Strategic Opportunities, Credit, Secondaries through Glendower Capital, and Infrastructure through DIF Capital Partners. The Europe & Americas strategy seeks to invest in cash-generative businesses located across the Americas and Europe that occupy defensible market positions, generate predictable cash flows, and possess a diversified customer base. The Asia-focused strategy makes control, co-control, and structured minority investments in businesses that benefit from the local rising middle class and other demographic and secular trends in the region. CVC Growth Partners, launched in 2014, is focused on high-growth companies operating in the software and tech-enabled business services sectors, primarily targeting North American and European investments. CVC's Strategic Opportunities platform targets North American and European businesses that may not suit a traditional private equity mandate. CVC Credit Partners (CCP), established in 2006, is a debt manager whose service combines industry practice across origination, investment and credit evaluation, portfolio management, and trading. CVC Credit Partners manage private debt and special situations funds, as well as hedge funds. CCP aims to work with investors to deliver risk-adjusted returns. The firm provides tailored, flexible, and value-added solutions for investors seeking access to speculative-grade credit instruments. CCP is experienced in sourcing, evaluating, managing, and monitoring credit across the spectrum of sub-investment grade products. It has the ability to offer investment management in loans, bonds, subordinated debt, specialized situations, and structured credit. In January 2022 CVC entered into a merger and strategic partnership with London-headquartered secondary fund manager Glendower Capital, creating its new CVC Secondaries strategy. Glendower Capital continues to operate under its own brand name but is a part of CVC Capital Partners; AUM CVC's Secondaries strategy for (€13bn as of 31 December 2023) is counted under Glendower Capital's firm profile, and has been deducted from the AUM figures on CVC's profile. In September 2023, CVC announced the acquisition of a majority stake in Amsterdam-based DIF Capital Partners, an infrastructure manager focused on core, build-to-core, and core-plus funds. DIF will continue to be led by its own management and will retain independence over its operations and investment decisions. AUM for CVC's Infrastructure strategy (€17bn as of 31 December 2023) is counted under DIF Capital Partners' firm profile, and has been deducted from the AUM figures on CVC's profile.
