Having established trusted long term relationships with some of the world’s leading private equity firms, we are often able to gain access for our clients into select private equity investments through direct deals and select private equity funds, but only after these opportunities have been thoroughly evaluated and passed our strict criteria in order to be approved by our product experts.
Leveraging our connections as well as our extensive access to leading research and analysis we are often invited to take part in fund raising for pre-initial public offering (IPO) shares. These opportunities are usually reserved for connected parties and the investment banks leading the listing process, but occasionally are made some of the world’s leading private equity firms who seek to broaden the shareholder base before listing.
Similar to both private equity and pre-ipo investment opportunities, from time to time our connections generate very early stage opportunities available for investment which meet our strict criteria for risk and reward. We only offer such opportunities as part of our overall assessment of our Client’s individual risk profile so are not generally available to all. Once we take a position in angel investment opportunities we stay the course as it processes through subsequent private equity fund raising stages and onwards through the pre-ipo structuring and offering and to the eventual listing of the company on a public stock exchange.
We are highly experienced in advising on and introducing high net-worth clients to the private sale global network for the purchase and sale of rare violins.
The designation “rare violins” refers to violins made between the 16th and 19th century. Famous and valuable rare violins from the so-called Golden Age of violin making, especially those made by Italian master luthiers such as Antonio Stradivari, Guarneri del Gesù and other top-tier master luthiers, are some of the most sought-after violins by both collectors and performers.
