LEADING PRIVATE EQUITY PLACEMENT ADVISORY FIRM

About Athos

Our Approach

Reduced fundraising time and significant capital contribution from highly regarded Limited Partners.

Insight

Based on a highly focused placement approach, we distinguish ourselves by our in‐depth knowledge of our clients’ propositions and their markets. This allows us to act as a virtual extension of the fund manager. In consequence, we are able to interact with investors in a more detailed and effective manner, whilst our clients can keep their attention on making and managing investments.

COMPETENCE

We have successfully advised both well established and emerging managers and tailor our services to each client’s specific requirements. The entire team is fully active on each transaction and fully dedicated to all aspects of the fundraising process, from drafting documentation, interacting with investors up to coordinating legal advisers at closure.

DEDICATION

We partner with a select number of clients each year and have a preference for highly differentiated propositions in situations where our team can add significant value in the different stages of the fundraising processes. Our firm is fully owned by its partners, ensuring complete dedication and alignment of interests.

REACH

Our team has well-established and longstanding relationships with leading institutional investors worldwide, including asset managers, banks, family offices, funds of funds, public bodies, insurance companies, investments trusts and pension funds.

Fully dedicated
and Deeply involved team

Our long-term relationship with Athos Partners was very important to be able to reach our target for our sixth fund. Despite the COVID-19 outbreak we were able to execute a highly efficient fundraising, obtaining our goals for terms and investor base composition, in addition to closing the fund in three months from first digital meeting to first and final close at hard cap.

Louise NilssonPartner and CEO, Priveq

We highly valued Athos for their professional and efficient approach. Their thorough understanding of our requirements greatly helped in selecting the right investors for us.

We enjoyed working with Athos Partners again after they successfully raised our previous fund, Elvaston Capital III in 2017. Their expertise and advice were instrumental in helping us exceed our hard-cap once again for Elvaston Capital IV, all whilst completing the fundraising in a timely manner of approximately 6 months.
