FlowStone Partners

Overview

FlowStone Partners provides High Net Worth and Family Office investors with institutional-quality, highly diversified exposure to the Private Equity asset class through secondary, primary, and co-investment strategies. The FlowStone senior investment team has over 65 years of combined private equity secondary and primary investment experience. As opposed to institutionally oriented fund-of-funds investment managers, our investment strategies are executed through investment vehicles that strive to meet the unique requirements of High Net Worth investors and their advisors. The FlowStone team has the ability to design and manage co-mingled fund products and, using this same private-equity expertise, the potential to build customized vehicles with bespoke strategies to accommodate the needs of a variety of investor types.
