Overview: Forbes PCG
Forbes Private Capital Group (“FPCG”) is the leading independent financial advisory and capital formation firm focusing on private partnerships in private equity, hedge funds, credit, real estate, real assets and opportunistic strategies in both developed and emerging markets. FPCG represents a dynamic new partnership between G2 and Forbes Financial Services, LLC, a division of Forbes Media, which combines the world class financial services brand of Forbes with the global distribution expertise of the G2 fundraising team. This partnership provides FPCG with an unrivaled network of ultra high net worth and institutional investor relationships that will serve as an invaluable resource in the capital raising process.
Over the past decade our team has been dedicated to identifying, developing and maintaining relationships with smart, liquid and active investors around the world including: corporate, state and local pension plans, sovereign wealth funds, high net worth individuals and family offices, fund-of-funds, endowments and foundations, financial institutions, insurance companies and consultants. Since inception, the team has successfully raised in excess of $10 billion for its clients, who represent the full spectrum of alternative asset classes. The Forbes Private Capital Group currently consists of over 15 professionals with coverage throughout the United States, Europe, Middle East, and Asia. We continue to expand our presence globally.
FPCG advises and executes on all aspects of the capital raising process and we understand that as general partners, our clients need to balance business operations with the demands of fundraising. With this in mind, we provide our clients with a comprehensive suite of services, including, competitive positioning and a global marketing strategy to all marketing related documentation and the various partnership terms and conditions.
Forbes Private Capital Group engages only a select number of funding assignments from the hundreds reviewed by our team annually to ensure each client is afforded the resources necessary to complete an efficient and successful fundraise while avoiding any conflicts of interest. Our disciplined and rigorous screening process ensures that only the best funds advance to full due diligence. The active dialogue that we maintain with our global investor base and constant assessment of current market trends helps to narrow the potential mandate pool even further, leaving only those of the highest caliber.
We emphasize and have successfully represented private equity, hedge funds and real assets including debt and equity funds, special situations, opportunistic real estate and international funds. Additionally, our team has raised capital for these strategies through fund vehicles, managed accounts, direct transactions and secondary interactions.
Forbes Private Capital Group will selectively collaborate with clients for whom a full capital raising mandate may not be feasible. Our project management team offers these clients advisory services that mirror the rigorous due diligence and documentation assistance of broader mandates but with a more focused and select approach to the capital raising effort. In light of recent market developments, the need for institutional quality marketing materials has become paramount to fund marketing, and our team consistently provides our clients with documentation that exceed industry standards. Additionally, our clients benefit from our project management team’s extensive experience with structuring funds to determine the partnership terms and marketing strategy, which includes all materials for a successful fundraise.
