What We Do
Sutton Hill serves as an extension of staff for private equity firms who prefer to maintain a lean organization. Our mission is to bring large cap LP relations capabilities to the middle market and drive each fundraise to an oversubscribed position.
Founded in 2014 to focus solely on fundraising and investor relations support. Led by two senior professionals with deep experience in the sector. We provide a consistent presence throughout fundraising cycles.
Private equity firms of all sizes and strategies who seek a specialized fundraising resource at anytime before, during, or near the end of a fundraise. We work with clients who embrace a “continuous fundraising” mindset.
