Touchstone has extensive investor relationships globally. Our primary LP relationships are in the United States, Canada and Europe. We also have relationships with a variety of leading institutional investors in other geographies, including the Middle East, Asia, and Australia.
We maintain relationships with a broad spectrum of institutional investors. Our proprietary database, which individually tracks all past interactions, current status and investing plans of several thousand institutional investors, is a significant repository of specialized intelligence on the institutional investor market. This database is continuously updated and is shared in real-time by and among all Touchstone professionals, which enhances coordination and provides seamless service to a GP throughout the fundraising process. The database includes:
- Institutional investment consultants
- Large family offices and multi-family offices
- Foundations and endowments
- Funds of funds
- Insurance companies
- Pension funds (corporate, public, healthcare-related, educational, religious, and Taft-Hartley)
- Sovereign wealth funds
- Wealth advisors and private banks
- Other institutional investors
Depending on a GP’s investment strategy and fundraising circumstances, our marketing approach may target any, all or a specific subset of these classes of institutional investors. Managers with multiple prior funds use Touchstone’s capabilities to complement and broaden their existing LP relationships.
