Revelstoke Capital Partners

In November 2019 CIP VII led a transaction, with a $120m commitment, whereby Upstream Rehabilitation (the third-largest operator of outpatient physical therapy clinics in the US), was moved from a 2015-vintage buyout fund to a new single-asset vehicle.

In April 2018, CIP VII signed an agreement with CDC Group, the UK government’s development finance institution, to commit up to $300m to pursue secondary opportunities in India-focused private equity funds.
