Established investors with dedicated capital

Allstate is one of the oldest and most established institutional investors of private equity capital. We’ve come a long way since our origins as a bootstrap venture capital investor in the 1960s, evolving into a leader in modern private equity on a global scale.

Private equity is a vital and growing part of Allstate Investments’ clients’ portfolios. Allstate Investments strives to deliver attractive long-term returns. We have talented teams pursuing differentiated themes and opportunities around the world, providing investment solutions that are both flexible and patient.

With offices in Northbrook and London, our team maintains close relationships with best-in-breed partners including, private equity firms, independent sponsors, intermediaries and other like-minded investors. Thanks to the collective skills and experience of our group, along with the vast resources across Allstate, we can identify, execute and manage investments in a broad range of strategies.

Our private equity effort is organized around two broad lines of business in major markets around the world: corporate and infrastructure and real assets.

Corporate

We are active across the continuum of corporate private equity investing, from providing capital to growth-stage companies to buying out mature businesses. We provide equity capital to experienced managers raising traditional funds and to highly capable sponsors of direct transactions. Typical investments range from $15 to $100 million.

Infrastructure and Real Assets

We seek to take advantage of opportunities in infrastructure and real assets, leveraging Allstate’s sector expertise and network of relationships in these areas. These investments typically have relatively lower risk and higher yields than our corporate investments, providing differentiated exposure with attractive risk-adjusted returns. Typical investments range from $25 to $100 million.
