Direct investments and advisory

Mid-sized financial institutions, entrepreneurs and family offices increasingly seek to invest directly with a greater level of control and transparency, but few have the resources to build a rigorous investment program.

We provide such investors with an infrastructure, capabilities, and privileged access to unique institutional direct and co-investment opportunities, sourced from an experienced network of local investors and experts, and selected through a rigorous process tailored to their needs.

Our approach

We seek to build long term value together with our clients in the portfolios we advise on. To that end, our approach is grounded in three principles:

Institutional dealflow: We source opportunities from our institutional fund relationships, organically through our network of investors, and for selective partners, through systematic research and sourcing. Through these channels, we have had access to over 4000 institutionally vetted deals across US, Europe, and India.

Selective screening: We work with our clients to understand their needs and investment capabilities, and provide the resources necessary to implement a selective screening process to ensure the right opportunities are evaluated and executed.

Cost efficiency and alignment: We work with our partners in a transparent manner to build a long-term position in each transaction or portfolio and share costs and upside to align interests.

Our focus

We invest into and advise on investment opportunities across a range of private equity asset classes and themes. Past and current transactions and advisory mandates include:

  • Secondary market and pre-IPO transactions

  • Asset backed private debt

  • Early- and growth-stage venture capital

  • Growth and established private equity

  • Swiss real estate

  • Impact investments
