Through its affiliated registered broker-dealer, Bentley Securities Corporation, the firm’s registered professionals maintain an extensive network of institutional sources of capital for alternative asset managers. Our capital raising expertise encompasses private equity (both buyout and venture), mezzanine funds, hedge funds and special purpose funds (including real estate and distressed situation funds). We have worked with both domestic and international funds, seeking capital both in the United States and in Europe.
While Bentley Securities Corporation prefers being hired as the exclusive agent on a fund raising project, we do accept supplemental, tailored assignments that might involve rounding out a fund after a first closing or targeting a specific portion only of the institutional investor universe. We raise capital only from institutional sources, which may include family offices, but not from individual accredited investors. We are interested in working with all funds of $75 million or more.
