What is an Emerging Manager?

Generally speaking, Emerging Managers will be firms early in their existence, raising institutional capital for funds one, two or three. This category would also include diverse and female-operated firms, transition groups who've spun out of larger firms, fundless sponsors, and many funds under $1 billion in size. By strategy we welcome private markets fund managers of all kinds, including private equity, venture capital, real estate, growth equity, mezzanine debt, and more. In short, we cast a broad net. If you don't know if you're an emerging manager or not, give us a call and we'll talk you through it. For more information, please contact Vikash Magdani at
