funds of funds
Funds that are specifically created to invest in a range of other private equity funds. Like feeder funds, they often offer access to investment opportunities not otherwise available to an investor. In addition, they allow investors to diversify their portfolio between various management teams, which they might be unable to do individually, lacking the expertise and resources to build and manage individual diversified portfolios.
