Scala Fund Advisory is a specialised advisory and fundraising boutique dedicated to alternative investments. We offer solutions to best in class private equity fund managers and professional investors globally. We have offices in London, Stockholm and Helsinki.
Our team has over 60 years of combined private equity fundraising, investor relations and business development experience. Our home market is Europe and parts of Asia. In total our network of relationships covers more than 500 top-tier institutional investors.
The Scala Fund Advisory team was responsible for fundraising and investor relations at a leading Nordic multi-strategy private equity firm for 15 years. Our General Partner “DNA” means that we are not only a distribution network. We have a deep understanding of the private equity business as a whole, enabling us to assist General Partners facing different challenges like succession, governance, conflicts of interest, incentives, reporting and valuations.
As a specialised private equity advisor, we aim to build long term partnerships with our clients. For the professional investors in our global network, our objective is to present high quality and best suited investment opportunities.
Currently we are fundraising for:
– Swedish small-cap buyout fund
– Northleaf (North American mid-market secondary fund)
– Rothschild FACP (US mid-market sector-focused buyout fund)
– Hamilton Lane (separate mandate vehicle to access US and European large-cap buyout funds)
– Evolver (Finnish and Swedish small-cap buyout fund)
Services for fund managers
At Scala, we only work with a handful of best-in-class fund managers from around the world at any given time. This makes us highly selective and ensures that we give 100% to each fundraising mandate that we take on. Scala offers tailor-made services to suit the needs of both established and emerging managers, from full-scale global fundraisings to regional and top up mandates.
Services for investors
The secondaries market is now ever more liquid that it has become an essential tool in managing institutional private equity portfolios. The aim may be to adjust vintage, geography or strategy exposures, to reduce over-diversification or to free up capital for new opportunities. At Scala, we have a wide network of international secondaries buyers and provide institutional investors with independent advice and fully managed auction services.
