Portage in the news

As of December 31, 2021. The aggregate AUM figure referenced above is an estimate and subject to formal and final release which is expected to be on or about March 31, 2022.

1 Assets Under Management ("AUM") is the sum of:

  • net asset value of Portage Ventures funds managed by Sagard, including uncalled capital commitments of those funds and unused leverage,
  • fair value of assets held in co-investment vehicles managed by Sagard investing alongside Portage Ventures funds and uncalled capital commitments of those co-investment vehicles.

Our definition of AUM is not based on any definition contained in our fund management agreements. Furthermore, our calculation may differ substantially from the manner in which the SEC defines “Regulatory Assets Under Management” on Form ADV and from the AUM definition used by other asset managers.
