Hamilton Lane to acquire Paul Capital


san francisco tram_sqPrivate equity firm Hamilton Lane is reportedly on the brink of acquiring fund of funds manager Paul Capital, which has been struggling to raise funds.

The deal is mostly done after negotiations that began in autumn, said Dow Jones, citing two people with knowledge of the matter.

Paul Capital hired Colchester Partners to work on a potential sale after struggling to raise its tenth vehicle.

In May this year Paul Capital lost four members of its healthcare team to hedge fund Visium Asset Management.

The firm said the group would continue to manage its healthcare and royalty funds as a subadviser.
