Apex Group partners with VCP Advisors to create VCP Apex

16 September 2021

Apex Group Ltd. (“Apex” or “the Group”), a global financial services provider, today announces that it has entered into a joint venture with VCP Advisors, a provider of financial, advisory and capital raising services for corporate and fund manager clients.

VCP Advisors works with companies as well as closed-ended and open-ended funds across the private equity, private credit, venture capital, infrastructure, real estate and hedge fund asset classes, to provide advisory, capital raising and restructuring services to the institutional and family office investor community.

As part of this strategic partnership, VCP Advisors will re-brand as VCP Apex, enabling clients to benefit from VCP’s impressive track record in alternative asset management advisory, in addition to delivering access to the wider Apex Group’s single-source solution; across depositary, custody, digital banking, ManCo, fund administration, middle office, corporate services, a digital marketing platform and an ESG Ratings and Advisory solution.

The joint venture further supports the Group’s expansion strategy for global fund marketing and distribution services. This announcement follows the recent launch of CSSF-regulated FundRock Distribution S.A. , to provide fund distribution solutions to non-EU asset managers, and the acquisitions of ARM Swiss Representatives SA, a leading provider of Swiss Representation and Distribution services to foreign fund managers, and Senasen Group, a digital marketing platform provider designed to connect LPs and GPs and support the capital raising process.

Peter Hughes, CEO and Founder of Apex Group comments: “We are pleased to be partnering with VCP to bolster our service capabilities in the Placement Agent space. The team has an impressive understanding of their clients’ investment strategies and portfolios, and by joining forces with our Group, collectively we are strategically placed to offer these managers the services they require, delivered globally by a single provider.”

Henry Talbot-Ponsonby, CEO and Co-Founder of VCP Advisors adds: “We are excited by the partnership with Apex Group and the ability to leverage their global reach, broad, high-quality service offering and institutional client base to provide our clients with access to compelling opportunities in the alternative investment sector and help them to achieve their strategic and financial objectives.”
