Competitive Advantages

Track Record

Since the establishment of the first Fund in 1995, Lone Star has organized 22 private equity Funds with aggregate capital commitments totaling approximately $86 billion.

In seeking investments in financial assets, an extensive background with these asset types is critical to accurately underwrite financial and collateral asset values and develop corresponding pricing. Lone Star has vast transactional experience, as the Funds have closed or committed to close 555 investments in approximately 2,030 transactions at an aggregate purchase price of approximately $249 billion (including acquisition financing and co-investors) as of September 30, 2022.

Global Origination Network

Lone Star sources investments on a global basis and evaluates potential investment opportunities that fall within the Funds’ investment parameters. The Funds have been actively investing in North America, Europe and Asia for over two decades. This established presence serves as a major competitive advantage when sourcing investment opportunities. Further, because of its access to large amounts of capital, Lone Star can focus particularly on larger scale transactions in which the potential list of buyers is often limited, maximizing the possibility of achieving attractive acquisition terms.

Asset Management

Since its inception in 1995, Hudson Advisors L.P. and its global subsidiaries (collectively, “Hudson”) have supported the Funds and the Funds’ investment activities globally, providing advisory services (including, without limitation, asset management and underwriting) and administrative and support services. Hudson, a globally integrated asset management company, has advised the Funds with respect to nearly 1.3 million assets with an aggregate purchase price of approximately $249 billion (including acquisition financing and co-investors) since 1995.

During its evaluation of investment opportunities, Lone Star utilizes Hudson’s extensive knowledge of global market pricing obtained through oversight of asset liquidations. Certain of the Funds also benefit from specialty management companies, owned by a Fund or Funds, that service various assets requiring specific expertise. Such companies include Green City Immobilier Holding, McCarthy & Stone Limited, Oedo Onsen Monogatari Hotels and Resorts, Co., Ltd., Propertize B.V., Quintain Limited, ServiHabitat Servicios Immobiliarios, S.L. and Start Mortgages Designated Activity Company. Read more about Asset Management.
