RANCHO SANTA FE, Calif., June 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Aditum Alternatives announced the filing of a new patent application for technology designed to limit dilution of investors in private market investment funds. The patent application reflects an enhancement of the Aditum Aqueduct, which enables novel private market investment products. Aditum Alternatives refers to the enhancement as "Commitment Vintages".
"Private market vintage funds have for decades avoided cash drag and dilution of investors. In attempting to limit cash drag and dilution, current registered private market funds significantly limit their investment universe. They've effectively eliminated new investment in underlying primary funds, which give underlying sponsors the power of when to invest, are vehicles of choice for institutional investors and historically have reflected the outperformance of private over public markets," said Ken McGuire, President of Aditum Alternatives. He continued, "Current registered private market fund investors are subject to dilution by new investors. 20% in new assets would dilute current investors' share of private market investments by almost 17%. Commitment Vintages allow an Aqueduct master fund investor, such as an institution, individual or Aqueduct feeder fund, to contribute little diluting capital at subscription and most of their capital subsequently, when needed for investment purposes. Investors in an earlier Commitment Vintage avoid dilution from investors in a later Commitment Vintage, while all are invested in a single, common, multi-vintage master fund."
