Lowering the Barriers to Private Equity Investing

Overview

FlowStone Partners provides qualified high net worth and institutional investors with highly diversified exposure to the private equity asset class through secondary, primary, and co-investments. The FlowStone investment team has over 65 years of combined private equity secondary and primary investment experience. As opposed to institutionally oriented closed-end funds, our investment strategies are executed through investment vehicles that strive to meet the unique requirements of high-net-worth investors, family offices and smaller institutional institutions. 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.
