Commonfund, a prominent investment manager for institutional investors, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Commonfund Capital, has promoted Cari Lodge of Darien, CT, to the position of Managing Director. Lodge has been an important contributor to the organization’s secondaries investment business and will help lead continued growth within this important investment practice.
“Since joining Commonfund last year, Cari has added material value to our efforts in the secondaries market which have and will continue to be an important area in our investment business,” said Don Pascal, President of Commonfund Capital, Inc.
Commonfund Capital’s secondaries practice dates back to the early 1990’s, and under Lodge’s recent direction, it continues to be a performance driver of the business. Secondary investments serve an increasingly important component of Commonfund Capital’s core private equity, venture capital and natural resources investment programs.
Prior to Commonfund, Lodge was a Director within Tulane University’s investment management office where she was responsible for private equity and private real assets investments.
