Private Funds Group


The Private Funds Group brings together extensive fundraising and in-house operating experience. Through this unique combination, we seek to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of the fundraising process for general partners and provide tailored advice on the development and implementation of strategic initiatives designed to improve market positioning, investor relationships, and fundraising effectiveness over the longer term. This is a unique alternative to legacy placement agency options.


The Private Funds Group is operated by a focused team of industry veterans with a broad base of industry experience dating back to 1997. The team is dedicated to providing de-conflicted agency services and bespoke, client-focused solutions to a select group of general partners. We do not employ a portfolio approach to raising funds—the success of every mandate we undertake is equally important.
