M² Announces Launch of M²-SURS Emerging Private Equity Fund-of-Funds, L.P. 

We are pleased to announce that on Wednesday, August 24, 2016, M² closed on a $100 million separate account from the State Universities Retirement System of Illinois ("SURS") to invest in private equity firms owned by minorities, women, and people with disabilities. This separate account will be committed across a diverse set of buyout and growth equity managers who we believe will create long-lasting value.
We are proud that one of our first clients, SURS, has remained our client over the years, and we hope to continue our relationship long into the future.   As a minority-owned firm, M² is especially honored to support SURS in its efforts toward increasing diversity and inclusion among its asset managers.

M ²-SURS Emerging Private Equity Fund-of-Funds, L.P.  ("M2SURS")                    
  • $100M in limited partner commitments

  • Focused on lower middle market private equity firms owned by minorities, women, and people with disabilities
  • Diversified by industry, region, stage, and vintage year


"M² is a private equity firm that utilizes a disciplined and differentiated investment process to identify the most promising investors who are focused on the lower middle market."
