A leader in specialist products

Threadmark excels in raising capital for innovative strategies. We like to represent managers that seek to unlock value through a differentiated approach to investment.

This may include opportunities in emerging sectors, as well as disruptive strategies in established markets. We are particularly effective at explaining complex products. We are perceived by investors as sophisticated counterparties, valued for our knowledge and perspective.

Highly experienced team, outstanding track record

Threadmark’s greatest asset is its team. We draw on a combined experience of over 220 years in capital raising and related activities. Our people come from a wide range of backgrounds, including significant experiences as fund managers, investors, accountants, corporate financiers and communications specialists, as well as capital raisers.

This breadth of knowledge enables us to understand products better, and to communicate them more effectively to investors. As a result we have enjoyed outstanding success for our clients, raising over $30 billion for over 50 vehicles since 2010.

Strong focus on value-add services

Threadmark strives to add value in every aspect of its services. We are exceptional sales people, but we are not just about distribution. We typically provide transformative capital; whether it is helping an established manager access a new investor base, helping a developing manager make the next big step in growing their platform, or helping a manager raise capital for a new strategy, we can make it happen.

We add strategic value to both product and process, working with our clients to create the optimal product, and crafting a tailored marketing campaign designed to maximise efficiency. We also frequently work with first time managers. We have advised on everything from organisational structure and recruiting the right team to establishing and enhancing investment and portfolio management processes and procedures.

Solely motivated by (long-term) success

As an independent firm exclusively focused on capital raising, Threadmark operates free from conflicts of interest. We have no other business lines, and no external shareholders to satisfy. We have one motivation: to achieve a successful raise.

We do not take on clients unless we have confidence that the project will be successful. However, success for us is not just measured in capital raised, but in the quality of services delivered and the enduring relationships we have built. We place our clients’ interests first, but we are always mindful of the interests of investors too. We take a long-term perspective on our business; we place our investor relationships at the heart of our firm and guard them jealously. A successful raise is therefore one which results in a strong long-term partnership between client and investor.

Responsibility and leadership

Although we are solely motivated by success, we believe that success is measured in a large part by the legacy we create.  We are passionately committed to making our world a better, and thereby a more sustainable, place. Threadmark leads by example in the promotion and implementation of ESG and Diversity & Impact investing. We strive to provide education and strategies to foster sustainable and equitable practices at all levels of the fundraising process. 

As an early adopter of ESG principles and one of the first placement agents to sign the UN’s Principles of Responsible Investment, we stand by our commitment to sustainability and diversity. We help our clients think through their approach to ESG and incorporate relevant standards into their business practices and investment processes.  We likewise help our clients to effectively articulate their commitment to ESG as part of their marketing strategy. In addition, we raise dedicated sustainability-focused funds and seek to work with fund managers who can demonstrate thought leadership in responsible investing. By adopting ESG as a core element of our firm, we strive to lead by example and believe it to be our responsibility to share our expertise. Having formed a dedicated ESG committee, members of the Threadmark team frequently contribute to ESG-focused panels, roundtables, and podcasts. Beyond providing our clients with a competitive edge, our goal is to share our best practices and promote the development of ESG and D&I policies to foster a more sustainable and balanced world.
