The firm has $18 billion in assets under management and 11 offices around the world. After the deal closes, Customized Fund Investment will be renamed the GCM Customized Fund Investment Group. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Grosvenor, headquartered in Chicago, focuses on alternative investments. The company, founded in 1971, invests about $23 billion on behalf of clients.
