We have raised over $3.6 billion in commitments from leading investors around the globe, and advised on over $2.0 billion of secondary transactions. Our founders have each had a key role building a top-performing investment firm. This heritage as private equity investment professionals provides us with an investor-focused perspective that sets Harken apart from traditional placement and secondary advisory firms.*

Fund Placement

A new group of leading private equity and venture capital firms is emerging right now. Current market turmoil is making clear that many long-established firms focus more on asset gathering than generating capital gains for investors. Limited partners are seeking new relationships that can deliver the returns they require. We focus on Funds I through IV, top-offs as well as full mandates.
