Crito’s core service is to raise capital for alternative fund managers. We plan and execute these campaigns for our clients.
We provide advice to managers who wish to rise above the crowded marketplace. We position clients for success by assisting with the creation of impactful materials and communication techniques. We understand best practices for team structure and compensation and we keep abreast of the changing dynamics of the business. We have significant experience evaluating fund structures, domicile choice and adding value by assisting our clients in transforming their investment practices.
We have raised equity and debt capital for early to late stage companies across the industry spectrum. We have completed projects on behalf of general partners seeking co-investment capital for portfolio companies, and have assisted independent sponsors in their efforts to fund investments on a deal-by-deal basis.
Crito utilizes the secondary market to create strategic alternatives for clients who are seeking liquidity for their limited partners. Often these General Partners will also need to add fresh capital to an existing fund or to create a successor vehicle.
Crito prepares and focuses the secondary marketing materials on the key metrics secondary buyers want to see. We endeavor to generate multiple bids quickly and to maximize value. Crito maintains relationships with many secondary buyers and is able to target transactions to the buyer’s specific interests and to streamline the process.
As a boutique investment bank, Crito focuses on serving the middle market with proven expertise in structuring and placing private transactions across various industries. The firm provides innovative financing solutions, drawing on the team’s deep expertise in the private credit and equity markets. Our personnel have unparalleled experience across developed and emerging markets, having worked with companies in a variety of jurisdictions.
