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.

Kensington Alternative Strategies Fund is +8.8% YOY — The fund was awarded third place in Best 5-year Sharpe Ratio category at the 2020 Canadian Hedge Fund Conference.

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

  • Clearpoint Health Network is Canada’s largest health network of independent surgical and medical centres.
