Private clients

Connecting investors to a wealth of opportunity

When investors want access to high quality, differentiated private markets opportunities, a global partner with local expertise, and a firm with a proven track record of success, they turn to HarbourVest. When fund managers seek a long-term partner who not only can serve as a vital source of capital, but also a trusted advisor, they look to HarbourVest.
We differentiate ourselves through our team’s collective experience – PCG team members have an average of 18 years of industry experience – as well as our emphasis on collaboration. We work closely with private banks and other wealth management platforms to understand their specific markets, needs, and objectives, and partner with them to build programs that are flexible and sustainable. We are also committed to providing ongoing education and support on the asset class to our partners.
In addition to providing scale and skill in delivering investment solutions, our partners rely on us to fully understand their unique needs and challenges, which for us means being well versed in areas such as distribution, reporting, booking, regulatory, tax, and structuring.

Companies seeking capital

Continuation solutions encompass a host of transaction types in which a GP secures interim liquidity and/or additional primary capital for their LPs in a strongly performing asset, or set of assets, that the GP will continue to own and control. Specifically, they include continuation funds, new funds created by GPs for the purpose of acquiring the asset(s) that continue to be managed by the same GP and capitalized by one or several secondary buyers, or equity recapitalizations involving a direct equity or structured equity investment into a portfolio company. These transactions can also include a parallel investment from the GP’s latest fund into that same pool of assets (a “cross-fund trade”).
