Monument Group, a global placement agent for private funds, is marking its 25th Anniversary.
Since 1994, Monument Group has focused solely on raising capital for private investment funds pursuing a broad range of strategies including buyouts, credit, distressed securities, energy, growth capital, infrastructure, natural resources, real estate, secondaries, special situations and venture capital. To date, Monument Group has assisted its clients in raising over USD100 billion in 91 funds, with limited partner commitments from 46 countries on five continents.
“In marking this milestone, we want to thank the very many General Partners with whom we have worked and who have contributed to our success. We appreciate all of the time and attention Limited Partners have shared with our clients and Monument Group over the years,” says Alicia Cooney, CFA, a Managing Director and Co-Founder of Monument Group. “We look forward to continuing to serve as a trusted advisor and leader in global private fund placement.”
Founded in Boston, Monument Group opened a London office in 2005, and established offices in Hong Kong and Tokyo in 2014. The firm’s 40 professionals include 16 partners with an average tenure of 13 years and average industry experience of 23 years. Monument Group’s senior team has significant buy-side investment and consulting experience, and every member is actively engaged in each fundraise. The firm’s presence in key markets has allowed Monument Group executives to establish deep relationships with a wide range of institutional investors around the world including pensions, foundations, endowments, consultants, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies, funds-of-funds, family offices and high-net-worth investors.
“We owe Monument Group’s 25 years of success to our independent ownership, our longstanding LP and GP relationships, and a well-honed and disciplined approach to selecting high quality fund managers,” says Mike Miller (pictured), Managing Director at Monument Group. “In addition, we work on a select number of differentiated mandates at any one time, seek to invest in every fund we raise, and share the successes of each fund raised across our entire team, closely aligning the interest of all parties.”
