Adams Street Partners has acquired a stake in a European buyout fund from William Marsh Rice University amid a rise in disposals from endowments and foundations, Secondaries Investor reports.

CCP IX, managed by London buyout firm Charterhouse Capital Partners, closed on its €4 billion target in March 2009 after about three months of fundraising, according to PEI’s Research & Analytics.
