CHICAGO, Jan. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Grosvenor Capital Management, L.P. and its affiliates (together, "Grosvenor" or the "Firm"), one of the world's largest discretionary allocators to hedge funds, today announced the successful completion of the previously announced acquisition of the Customized Fund Investment Group ("CFIG"), a leading global private equity, infrastructure and real estate investment management company, from Credit Suisse Group AG ("Credit Suisse") (NYSE: CS).  The combined business, with more than $44 billion in assets under management and over 375 professionals, will be one of the largest of its kind in the world.

"We are very pleased to complete our acquisition of CFIG.  We are confident that the transaction fundamentally strengthens our platform and makes us a more valuable partner for our clients," said Michael Sacks, chief executive officer of Grosvenor.  "Together, we will offer clients the ability to access the entire alternative investments landscape.  And importantly, our core values are aligned with CFIG's.  Both groups focus on investment performance, customized solutions that meet the unique needs of a global investor base, and comprehensive, transparent client service."
