We conduct exhaustive “Vanterra deep dives” in search of opportunities across strategies, industries and geographies. When we identify a compelling thesis, we seek to build specialized platforms alongside trusted partners. This process has led us to create or partner in eight specialized platforms to date.
Trilantic Capital Partners (FKA Lehman Brothers Merchant Banking Partners “LBMB”) is a leading private equity franchise, managing assets for a number of large institutional LPs. Established in 1986, the firm employs 33 investment professionals across New York and London.

Cressey & Company is one of the most established and successful teams involved in the lower-middle-market healthcare space. C&C was formed as a successor to Thoma Cressey Bravo, Inc., which in turn was a successor to GTCR, a firm cofounded in 1980 by Bryan Cressey. C&C's core focus areas in the healthcare industry are services and facilities, but they also pursue distribution or service opportunities related to pharmaceutical and medical supplies on an opportunistic basis. C&C employs a “target, buy, and build” strategy, which entails partnering with leading management teams to invest in a platform company and then accelerating growth through a combination of organic initiatives and acquisitions.
The partnership seeks to build companies and assets that entail transformative energy technologies and processes. This includes transactions in clean energy, efficiency technologies/sustainable materials, and renewable resources.

The overarching strategy of Vanterra NewGlobe will be to improve outcomes for General Partners (“GPs”) of broken or distressed private equity funds and also to provide liquidity to their Limited Partners (“LPs”). VNG will pursue three types of secondaries transactions specifically related to funds where the normal fundraising cycle for the GP has been “broken” or interrupted.
