CapMan Fund Advisory becomes Scala Fund Advisory

Scala Fund Advisory offers private equity advisory services globally to best-in-class private equity fund managers and institutional investors in the asset class. Scala is an independent partnership of private equity fund manager CapMan.

The Scala team has been responsible for fundraising at CapMan for more than 15 years working closely with institutional investors, investment teams and new business in the private equity industry. Since 2001, the team has raised more than €3bn across multiple strategies, including buyout, growth, venture capital, private debt and real estate from over 120 institutional investors. In addition to fundraising and investor relations services, Scala offers private equity portfolio and secondary fund market analysis for institutional investors. Scala has a broad global network of institutional investors and has local co-operation partners in the US and Asia.

"The competition for capital between private equity funds has tightened and there is significant demand for Scala's professional know-how as a result. Due to our broad experience and international networks, we believe that we can offer unique solutions to the challenges facing private equity fund managers and investors today. We focus on long term client relationships and want to present our clients with the best possible investment opportunities," comments Jerome Bouix, managing partner of Scala Fund Advisory.

"The growth of our service business is an important component of our strategic objectives. We strive to utilise the know-how of CapMan's internal service teams by offering services also to external clients. The formation of Scala Fund Advisory is a progression of this development," says Heikki Westerlund, CEO of CapMan.

Currently Scala is fundraising for managers within Nordic private debt, European venture capital, Nordic real estate, European infrastructure and Nordic activist strategies.
