Corporate finance boutique Dohr Capital has divested its fund placement unit, DC Placement Advisors, into an independent placement agency. The placement unit focuses on the raising of private equity funds, funds of funds and infrastructure funds.
DC Placement Advisors, which operated within Dohr since 2004, will function as a separate legal entity while remaining a wholly owned subsidiary of the Munich-based financial advisers.
Nina Dohr-Pawlowitz, who managed the businesses while it was an internal unit of Dohr, will become managing
director of the independent group.
“Over the past four years we have accumulated a lot of experience and have carried out many successful projects so that we decided to divest this business area into a separate company,” Hans-Peter Dohr, managing director of Dohr Capital, said in a statement.
“Additionally, the market for independent placement agents is not yet occupied and we see this as a market with potential for future expansion.”
DC Placement Advisors will take on only a limited number of assignments each year, raising funds from principal European investors with an emphasis on those in the German speaking market. The firm boasts relationships with more than 800 investors, according to its website.
