51 North Capital is a Partner-owned, regionally-focused placement agent and fundraising advisor to GPs.
We focus solely on institutional investors in German-speaking Europe (the DACH region), where we have long-standing, trusted relationships.
We understand our LPs' goals and preferences and proactively seek to partner with GPs whose products we believe will be attractive in our market.
While our investor coverage is purposefully regional, our GP clients are global and diverse.
We have deep experience across alternative asset classes, with a particular focus on:
We believe capital raising can be done differently and founded our firm to pursue a more strategic approach
We focus our activities where we have a genuine edge and unparalleled network, our home market, the DACH region
We benefit from combined GP-advisory and investment experience, which we bring to bear on every mandate
We are 100% Partner-owned and seek genuine alignment with clients, tailoring our engagements for true partnership
