Kirkland Advises Valor on Closing of $1.7 Billion Growth Fund V

Kirkland & Ellis counselled Valor Equity Partners, a leading growth-focused private equity investment firm headquartered in Chicago and with offices in New York City, San Francisco, and Seattle, on the final closing of Valor Equity Partners V, a $1.7 billion fund. Fund V was substantially oversubscribed, which required an increase in the hard cap set forth at the launch of the fundraising process. Following the Fund V close, Valor is managing approximately $7.3 billion in regulatory assets from a broad range of global, institutional, family office, and high net worth investors.

The Kirkland team was led by investment funds partners Chris Kallos, Adam Parks, Alexandria Glispie and Warren Goodworth and associates Syed Madani, Chad Rogers, Nick Kristensen and Omotunde Okesanya; and included investment funds partners Scott Moehrke and Ryan Swan; tax partner Dan Meehan; and ERISA partner Elizabeth Dyer.

Since July 2015, Kirkland has advised more than 600 unique sponsors on the formation of over 1100 funds with total capital commitments in excess of $1.42 trillion.

Trianz recognised as ‘Best Management Consulting Firm’ by Forbes

Trianz, a global digital transformation consulting and technology services firm, has achieved its second consecutive year recognition as one of ‘America’s Best Management Consulting Firms’ by Forbes in its 4th annual listing comprising 218 firms.

This year’s list, like last year’s, spotlights Trianz once again for its best-in-class advisory excellence. Forbes collaborated with the business intelligence and analytics company, Statista, to assess firms’ performances.

Trianz’ business theme, ‘Digital Evolution Simplified,’ reflects its commitment to helping organisations across industries overcome dynamic digital age challenges through simple, yet effective, techniques. The firm collaborates with business and technology leaders to transition their organisations into digital enterprises by delivering industry-leading Cloud, Analytics, Digital, Infrastructure, and Security solutions, in addition to superior Managed Services that ensure long-term success. The firm’s unique delivery model, collaborative consulting approach, and its ability to deploy impactful, game-changing technologies together provide superior value to clients.

The 2019 list was tallied based on a two-phase study comprising an expert survey (partners and project managers from management consultancies) and a client survey covering senior executives, who have previously worked with management consultancies.

Expressing their delight, Co-Presidents at Trianz, Rollen Roberson and Ganeshan Venkateshwaran said, “Being named among ‘America’s Best Management Consulting Firms’ in this year’s Forbes/ Statista list makes us proud and happy indeed. The pride comes from this honor being reflective of our clients’ and peers’ favorable opinion of us. The happiness, of course, is a function of our value proposition being re-validated by Forbes / Statista for two straight years — that we are delivering on our commitment to create meaningful business impact.”

“At Trianz, we hold receiving objective feedback in high esteem. Especially since it motivates us to constantly drive successful business results and a competitive advantage for our clients. Being ranked in a list of such stature for two consecutive years is truly encouraging,” added Prashant Bhavaraju, Vice President for Marketing at Trianz.
