Arlington Capital Partners, a leading middle market private equity firm, announced a passive, non-voting, minority equity investment by Goldman Sachs Asset Management’s (“GSAM”) Petershill program, creating a strategic relationship with one of the world’s leading investment managers and accelerating Arlington’s growth and success.

The investment follows a multi-decade relationship between Goldman Sachs and Arlington in which GSAM has been a limited partner investor in Arlington’s funds. The transaction will have no impact on the day-to-day operations or management of Arlington. The additional capital will facilitate the continued strategic growth of Arlington as it expands an existing first-class base of global limited partners, utilizes its unique sector expertise to provide additional highly differentiated investment vehicles to its investors, and further invests in the firm’s organization and infrastructure.

Matt Altman, Michael Lustbader, and Peter Manos, the Managing Partners of Arlington, said, “We are excited to expand our partnership with Goldman Sachs. They have an outstanding reputation within the investment community and we are privileged that they have chosen to make this strategic minority investment in our platform through the Petershill program. GSAM has a long history of supporting the world’s top performing alternative asset managers, and we are honored to have their partnership as we continue to grow our firm.”
