    CVC has announced the completion of the acquisition of DIF Capital Partners and the final 20% stake in Glendower Capital.


    Effective immediately, Glendower Capital will be rebranded as CVC Secondary Partners, and DIF Capital Partners will be rebranded as CVC DIF. The individual investment strategies, investment committees, and fund names will remain unchanged.


    Wim Blaasse, Managing Partner and Head of CVC DIF, will transition to Chair on 1 July 2025, with Gijs Voskuyl, Managing Partner, stepping up as Head. Wim Blaasse will continue to be fully involved in driving the business, including chairing its investment committees, over the next several years. Gijs, who joined DIF in 2008, has been instrumental in building the DIF platform alongside Wim for the past sixteen years.


    CEO of CVC, Rob Lucas, commented “We are delighted to have completed the transaction to acquire CVC DIF and to have fully acquired the final stake in CVC Secondary Partners. With Secondary Partners and Infrastructure part of CVC, alongside our Private Equity and Credit strategies, we have an ever more scaled, diversified and differentiated platform to support further growth.”


    Managing Partner and Head of CVC Secondary Partners, Carlo Pirzio-Biroli, added, “We have been delighted with our partnership with CVC over the past few years; the brand, client base, and the strength of the CVC network has enabled us to take advantage of strong market tailwinds, and accelerate the growth of our business.”


    “We are excited by the opportunity over the next few years as the secondaries market continues to grow, and we believe the investment opportunities available will enable us to continue delivering attractive returns for our clients.”


    Wim Blaasse said  “We are excited to become part of CVC and we look forward to benefitting from CVC’s global platform, scale and client relationships. I am delighted to be transitioning the leadership of CVC DIF to Gijs who is a very strong leader, and with whom I have worked closely over the past sixteen years.”


    Gijs Voskuyl mentioned “I am excited to be working with Wim and our wider partner group as we continue to build and invest in our business, and leverage CVC’s global platform, scale and client relationships. We look forward to taking CVC DIF to the next phase of growth and to continue to deliver attractive returns for our clients.”


    According to paragraphs 14.4.3 and 19.6.1 of the IPO prospectus, CVC has issued an additional 37,448,444 shares as part of the aggregate consideration for acquiring the initial 60% stake in DIF Capital Partners and the final 20% stake in Glendower Capital.
