Overview 

Whether its firm reorganization, augmentation or executing  a private fund and firm for a portfolio strategy, we offer high level collaborative support across the private fund manager enterprise.  Substantial experience and expertise from industry veterans advising the spectrum of strategies (conventional to niche), investors and asset management firms of all shapes and sizes for more than two decades. Our Clients gain the business value of their pedigree and track record complemented by our partner level professional experience across start-ups, established and well-known global asset managers.

What sets us apart

Notwithstanding most institutional capital is allocated to large and well established asset management firms, new and emerging managers with the right business strategy and support can find fundraising success with allocators across high net worth, family offices and institutions.  No one business model fits all so we focus on each client’s short and long term goals to create a bespoke (not cookie cutter) fund formation, trading firm infrastructure and professional investor offering structure tailored to a client’s target market investor(s).  We take into consideration portfolio strategy, return profile and assets under management to  help close the gap between our boutique firm and the big law firm margins without sacrificing a high level of viable “collaborative” business and legal support.
