Charlesbank Capital Partners Named Private Equity Firm of the Year by Foundation & Endowment Money Management

Charlesbank Capital Partners was named Private Equity Firm of the Year at a dinner commemorating Foundation & Endowment Money Management’s 2010 Non-Profit Awards for Excellence. The event was held in Carlsbad, CA, earlier this week.

The award recognizes the private equity manager who most stands out for its successes, achievements and contributions over the past year. Nominees and winners were selected after industry-wide due diligence by the editorial team of Institutional Investor’s Foundation & Endowment Money Management’s newsletter. Decision criteria included such factors as strong fund performance and a reputation for transparency with its clients, with industry feedback playing a critical role in the process.

Charlesbank raised its seventh fund, of $1.5 billion, in the spring and early summer of 2009. With that fund, it added many new endowments and foundations to its limited partner base.
