A boutique consulting and banking firm, Witherspoon Partners has two facets:
Witherspoon Partners selectively partners with ambitious firms that have an identifiable edge
and that are generating strong uncorrelated returns for investors.
Witherspoon Partners offers high-touch business development strategy consulting to help grow both newer and established firms to the next level. Marketing and communications expertise is at the heart of our advisory, giving firms the ability to focus on their core competency. Witherspoon serves as a true a partner in expanding a firm’s business; as such, we dedicate resources and time to the process of thoroughly understanding our clients and their goals.
Witherspoon Partners provides access to a broad pool of investor relationships spanning from high-net-worth individuals and single family offices to larger pension and sovereign wealth funds. We raise capital through the FINRA-registered broker-dealer Emerson Equity LLC. Our understanding of deal structures facilitates even the most complex transaction execution and aligns interests of all parties.
Witherspoon Partners connects investors to a curated deal flow of differentiated and high returning investment opportunities. The opportunities we represent, which span the alternative asset classes—private equity, real estate, venture, hedge funds, shipping, biopharma and others—all possess or are backed by solid track records, significant validation, and the pedigrees of the principals.
With decades of experience in the industry gleaned from both sides of the allocation table, the Witherspoon Partners team works to identify and evaluate promising, high-quality managers and operators. We source compelling strategies and firms that we believe offer high value-add to investors.
