About Us

Constellation is a private equity strategy that provides growth capital to private alternative asset management firms.  Constellation’s structured investments seeks to create financial solutions and strategic added value for alternative asset management firms while generating multiple sources of value for asset owners. A long track record of investment performance and value creation demonstrates the merits of combining ownership stakes in alternative asset management firms with curated exposures to a diverse range of underlying assets.

Constellation strives to be a symbol of alignment between asset owners and alternative managers, and a force for innovation within the alternatives industry. Structured the right way, Wafra believes that partnerships with promising alternative investment firms are an opportunity to make ground-breaking investments in scalable, forward-thinking strategies. Importantly, through our bespoke structure, we seek to generate consistent, long-term value for the ultimate beneficiaries of Constellation.
