NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dextra Partners LLC (“Dextra" or the “Firm”) announced its formation as an independent, multi-strategy investment firm focused on providing investors with differentiated middle market private equity opportunities. Headquartered in New York, the Firm has been established with $2.5 billion of investable capital in vehicles managed by Dextra from a select group of strategic partners.
Dextra’s six Founding Partners, who own a controlling interest in the Firm, represent nearly 150 years of collective investment experience across primary fund commitments, secondaries, private debt, structured capital, equity-co-investment, and GP seeding/staking.
The Founding Partners previously spent an average of 19 years at GoldPoint Partners, which had $16 billion in assets under management at the time of their departure. The Founding Partners are:
- Quint Barker: Former Chief Investment Officer at GoldPoint Partners

“We are tremendously grateful to our strategic partners for their significant vote of confidence in our vision,” said the Founding Partners. “Middle market private equity can be a difficult segment to navigate for many investors. We aspire to create a platform that helps a diverse and global investor base access quality investment opportunities in this segment using our time-tested approach.”
Dextra seeks to identify and build deep relationships with top-tier middle market sponsors early in their life cycles and is launching with a robust set of established, blue-chip sponsor relationships. The Firm’s integrated coverage model optimizes sourcing and decision-making by facilitating ease of use, transaction insights, and access to subject matter experts.
“Middle market private equity firms are continually looking for a partner of choice to help strategically scale their platforms and portfolio companies,” the Founding Partners said. “Building on our legacy experience, we are committed to providing our partners with flexible capital solutions using our long-term and holistic partnership-oriented model."
