2020 Highlights

--

it’s been a heck of a year.

This year has been a whirlwind to say the least. 2020 has been a year of reinvention, challenges, and changes. Back in October, we held our virtual Kensington Investor Conference with updates from our team, our portfolio companies, and LPs. We thought this would be a great time to take a deep dive into the highlights of our 2020 year:

👏 NEW TEAM MEMBERS

For this year, we are welcoming two new faces to the team:

✨ COMPANY FUNDS HIGHLIGHTS

Kensington Private Equity Fund is +14.7% YOY net — We distributed approximately $27.1 million in 2020. On the direct investment side, we welcomed 11 new investments. Among our fund investments, we added 5 new fund commitments.

⚡ PORTFOLIO HIGHLIGHTS
This year, we welcomed some new companies and new faces to our portfolio including Clearpoint Health Network, LifeSpeak, Gridpoint, and Mintsmartwash.
