About GoldPoint

Firm History

GoldPoint Partners has managed private equity investments for over 25 years.  Our history goes back to 1991 when, as members of the investment division of New York Life Insurance Company, the senior investment principals began transforming New York Life’s private equity program from a collection of small investments across many private equity funds to a focused selection of key relationships with top performing financial sponsors.  At that time, the investment team also began focusing on direct equity co-investments and mezzanine investments alongside these key sponsors.      

In 1999, in conjunction with raising third party capital, the senior investment principals formed the predecessor firm to GoldPoint Partners, New York Life Capital Partners, as a separate subsidiary of New York Life focused on alternative investments. We have been an investment adviser registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission since 2002 under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. Since that time, we have raised third party capital through twelve investment vehicles, including five Equity Co-investment Funds, four Mezzanine Funds, and three Fund-of-Funds. 

In 2012, we renamed the firm GoldPoint Partners.  The name GoldPoint is a direct reference to the golden pinnacle at the top of the New York Life building, symbolizing our heritage as part of the New York Life family of investment boutiques, while also providing a distinct identity that reflects our independent investment processes and operations.  We continue to be an independent investment boutique under New York Life’s ownership, with the ongoing support of New York Life as one of our founding and largest investors. 

Through March 31, 2017, GoldPoint Partners has approximately $11.6 billion of assets under management across equity co-investments, mezzanine investments and limited partnership investments.
