Wednesday: Do you need help with GP-led secondaries?

GP-led transactions made up 32% of the $74bn secondaries market in 2018, so it’s unsurprising that secondaries advisory services are in high demand.

This Wednesday, we’re highlighting secondaries advisors in the private equity industry that assist with GP-led secondaries transactions, a growing market that is not without complications.

“GP-led restructurings are a helpful innovation but the process is complicated,” Simon Witney and Andrew Rearick of Debevoise & Plimpton wrote in a recent guest commentary for Private Funds CFO. “Conflicts between the parties involved – the GP, the selling investors, the ‘rolling’ investors and the buyers – need careful management.”

GP-led transactions made up 32 percent of the $74 billion secondaries market in 2018, so it’s unsurprising that secondaries advisory services are in high demand. To help make sense of a growing market, we’ve created a downloadable directory featuring key data and contact information for each firm.

In the spreadsheet, we include an overview of each company, their websites, number of employees, examples of their work and contact information. The list is compiled by our editorial team and data points are sourced directly from the service providers.

Providers listed in the spreadsheet have not been paid to be featured. We welcome other providers getting in touch with the Private Funds CFO editorial team to discuss their services.

This is the fourth ongoing directory we have uploaded onto our site. The others include spreadsheets of compliance consultants with PE experience, consultants that offer robot process automation services and service providers offering automated waterfall calculations.
