As part of the acquisition, AltaReturn was combined with Vista portfolio company, Black Mountain Systems, to form Allvue Systems. With the combined entity, Allvue pairs AltaReturn’s private equity expertise with Black Mountain’s credit knowledge and is now the market leader in alternative investment solutions, serving 50 of the top 100 CLO managers, with more than $2.5 trillion of assets, 90,000 LPs, and $60 billion of family office assets on its platform.
