Illiquid Financial Assets Practice
Houlihan Lokey’s Illiquid Financial Assets (IFA) practice is a global center of excellence for the intermediation of diverse illiquid financial assets. The maturation of the hedge fund and private equity industry, coupled with the depth of the recent financial crises, has created significant dislocations – and lucrative investment opportunities – for alternative capital investors, healthy financial institutions and sophisticated institutional investors. Recent years have seen investors and ultra-high-net-worth family groups seeking to buy, sell or finance portfolios of illiquid financial assets.

Through this unique combination, we seek to maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of the fundraising process for general partners and provide tailored advice on the development and implementation of strategic initiatives designed to improve market positioning, investor relationships, and fundraising effectiveness over the longer term. This is a unique alternative to legacy placement agency options.
