Private clients

Connecting investors to a wealth of opportunity

HarbourVest provides solutions for private clients seeking to gain access to private market opportunities across the globe. Our dedicated Private Client Group (PCG) has deep experience working with individual investors and institutions, and understands the unique opportunities and challenges involved in serving broad private client investor bases.

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.
