Our Services

Triago provides fundraising services, secondary transaction advisory and strategic solutions for General Partners and Limited Partners seeking to optimize success in the global private equity market

Fundraising

Funds
Directs

For global and targeted mandates, we use knowledge of LP appetites to build momentum towards rapid closes with a prioritized, sequential approach to investors. We provide roadshow coordination, detailed investor profiles, investor follow-up, and regular fundraising reporting. We also handle complex, simultaneous limited partner due diligence processes.

Fundraising Advisory

Matching smart money with superior private equity plays

We only accept a small number of non-competing mandates at any one time and only from teams that we believe will produce superior returns for limited partners. Our project management teams and sales professionals advise our general partner clients on pre-marketing, fund design and terms, coach on effective messages and placement tactics, and draft fundraising presentations, private placement memorandums and due diligence packs.

Whether the mandate is global or targeted, we use our knowledge of limited partner appetites to narrow investor target lists to the most relevant, building momentum towards rapid closes by employing a prioritized, sequential approach to key investors. We provide roadshow coordination, detailed investor profiles, investor follow-up, and regular reporting on fundraising. We also handle complex, simultaneous limited partner due diligence processes.

As a full service firm, we work to fundraise expeditiously so that our clients have the time to do what they do best: invest.

Secondary Advisory

Maximizing value in a highly inefficient marketplace

Leveraging market intelligence and investor relationships from our primary fundraising activities, Triago is in permanent contact and has developed strong relationships with a wide universe of 400+ potential buyers with diverse investment profiles and appetites. Beyond mainstream secondary specialists, Triago has built a broad, global network of investors with an opportunistic approach to the secondary market. They use secondaries as an integral part of their overall portfolio construction. We help our clients crystallize value, clean-up non-core positions, reposition portfolios, improve the liquidity profile and duration of an overall program, release unfunded commitments and make room for new investment capacity.

GP M&A
Business Development

GPs are investing in more diverse geographies and becoming adept in a wider set of strategies, expanding organically and via M&A. LPs increasingly structure their own programs and corporates are adapting how they use private equity for their own benefit. We advise on all strategic and tactical options for all members of the private equity community.

Strategic Advisory

Private Equity is creating opportunities but also challenges for all market players

Decades of experience as an independent, innovative global specialist agent in private equity ideally positions Triago to assist PE players of all types. We help GPs, LPs, funds-of-funds, corporates, and others identify, prepare and execute a wide range of strategies and tactics, including mergers & acquisitions, joint-ventures, narrow or broad internal change, brand strengthening and more.

Some of the broad questions Triago’s strategic advisory addresses are:

  • How can the strategic and tactical challenges of operating in a changing environment be identified and profitably exploited?
  • Should GPs and LPs consider new geographies and how should they be evaluate these opportunities?
  • Can secondary market programs and real asset investing help GPs and LPs attain return objectives?
  • What does the industry think of a particular GP or LP?

Broad knowledge and experience of the global private equity space is essential for tackling these questions and successfully shaping sustainable organizations and practices.
