Founded in 1998, UBS Investment Bank's Private Funds Group (PFG) has emerged as one of the leading global
placement agents. Its founders continue to run the group with a team of 43 professionals. PFG has
excellent distribution capabilities in the US, Europe, Middle East and Asia, having successfully represented
GPs that have raised over US$65 billion since 1998. The team brings a focused approach to fundraising,
seeking to market no more than 10 mandates simultaneously. PFG considers this level of focus to be essential
in order for a GP to succeed given increasing LP requirements for information.
The team seeks to work with GPs targeting funds of $250 million and upwards and has experience across a wide range of disciplines including LBO, venture capital, life sciences and other alternative strategies. Strong emphasis is placed on providing advice to the GP, with the ultimate goal of raising an optimally sized fund in the shortest time, with the most favourable terms and investor base.
The PFG also offers secondary market advisory services solely focused on advising holders of private equity interests in funds and equity stakes in private companies on their liquidity options. The dedicated secondary market advisory team was officially created in 2004, but its founding team members have been involved in the sell-side structuring, negotiating and executing of secondary transactions since 2001. The team has broad experience in all types of secondary transactions and has executed more than $4 billion of transactions, including limited and full auctions, synthetic secondaries and joint venture structures.
