Scala Fund Advisory is a specialised advisory and fundraising boutique dedicated to assisting best in class private equity managers.
Our team has over 60 years of combined private equity fundraising, investor relations and business development experience. Our home market is Europe, South Korea and other parts of Asia. In total our network of relationships covers more than 600 top-tier institutional investors. We have offices in London, Stockholm and Helsinki.
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 provide more than just an investor 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, spin-out, 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 established and emerging managers.
Currently we offer fundraising services to:
– Hamilton Lane (separate mandate vehicles to access the most sought-after US and European buyout funds)
– A leading European direct lending fund
– Evolver (Finnish and Swedish small-cap buyout fund)
– A leading European Life Sciences fund
– Several direct infrastructure deals in Europe
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 mandates.
Running a successful GP requires more than just capital in the funds. At Scala, we help both established and emerging managers to scale up their operations. Our services include advise on setting up a GP, marketing strategy, fund positioning, team development and investor communication in between the funds.
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, through our wide network of international secondary buyers, we advise and provide customized solutions to our clients.
The new year has started intensively with several projects closing in the recent months. Thus, we thought we’d provide you with a glimpse into what Scala has been up to lately. Scala has completed a total of seven closings within private equity and real asset …
